Windows 2008 server wbadmin backup slow

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by saveoncomputers, Sep 19, 2008.

  1. Hello,
    I'm using wbadmin on W2k8S to backup 500 gig to a 2tb worldbook NAS at 1gb
    network speed, It takes 24 hours to backup.

    I can copy in around 3 hours.

    Does anyone know why it is so slooow?
    Is there any to change resource management on WBADMIN?

    Thanks,
    Robert

    What do you mean by resource management?

    How are you copying? Have you tried using Robocopy?

  3. Hello,

    The copy time is fine even though 3 hours is long it's not unreasonable. The
    backup time is unreasonable at 24 hours for the same info.

    The backup seems to use very little resources I guess so that it doesn't
    affect users or other processes.

    With a 1gb network, backup uses .5% of the network speed. It uses 1% of the
    CPU and 2mb/sec of the hard drive transfer rate.

    Is there a way to bump this up to using more resources and therefore,
    finishing faster?

    Thanks again,
    Robert
