Backup of share hangs

    Hi all,

    We are backing up a share as an example:

    \\share\files\

    The domain statement is simple:

    DOMAIN "\\share\files"
    We tried using memoryefficient yes, but, doesn't seem to help.


    This share contains 3 million objects (and is expected to grow). We find that in the dsmsched.log, it shows the last line at 1.3 million files, but, no activity commences. When doing a q se, you see the session, with an idlew of 0 seconds.

    I find that this happens during a manual backup as well. The server is a physical machine, 64 bit windows with 4 cores and 26GB of ram. network, cpu, and memory all look very good during the backup. Nothing appears in dsierror or ac log.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi,
    we use the Domain statement without quotes, like:


    DOMAIN \\Filer01\install
    Is it the first time you back it up with a scheduler.?

    no, not the first time.. it worked fine when the share had only a million files. I'm trying now without the memoryefficient to see how it goes. I notice too that the when cli hangs, it shows not responding in task manager and you can't kill it. You have to log off and back on again (this is for manual runs of course.)

    Do you think the absence of quotes may help?
    What version of the client are you using? We are using 6.2.4.7 with a TSM server 5.5

    Hi,
    Do you think the absence of quotes may help? if you run it well before, i think no, but you can try it.
    Do you have update/downgrade the clients in the last time.?
    We run Windows CLients 6.2.1 and also the CLient that Backup the filer CIFS.
    The Server is 2008R2 TSM Server 6.2.2

    try doing an image backup, if it works you know its the number of files causing issue and you may need to run jbb. I would suggest using NDMP which is an image backup with TOC and can be setup lanfree
