Backup DFS

Discussion in 'File Systems' started by Jürgen Breiner, Jul 14, 2004.

  1. Hello,

    i have installed DFS on my Windows2000 Server - it
    runs very well. Now i want to backup my server and
    the Backup job, with BE 8.6, stops at the DFS Directory!

    Do i need a Agent for Backup the Microsoft DFS ?

    No. you do not need the BE Agent for DFS
    You simply should always skip the DFS roots during a backup in your backup selection criteria.
    Only backup the data the DFS links point to.
