scheduled backup problem

proliant 1600 with stand alone 4mm dds tape. nt backup runs perfectly in attended mode, but all scheduled backups fail!.I want to backup to 5 tapes mon- friday and have scheduled a backup for each day using the correctly prepared tape assigned to the 4mm dds pool. Does anyone know how to schedule backups all help greatly appreciated

Re: scheduled backup problem

When you say it fails, what exactly do you mean? does it give you a particular error message?

Re: scheduled backup problem

I have struggled with scheduled backups using NTBackup and now use an unmanaged system which uses a scheduled cmd file. This has been working fine.

Try looking at the attached file. I am using Travan and 4mm tapes with this system.

Re: scheduled backup problem

sorry for the delay in replying.
the scheduled backup does not start at all so therefore no backup. i have installed win2k sp3 in the hope that it contained a fix but this was to no avail.I would lke to continue using nt backup if at all possible.Thank you again for your assistance

Re: scheduled backup problem

I din't say in my previous reply that it was the .cmd file I scheduled directly in the schedueled Tasks not backup.

Re: scheduled backup problem

Please forgive my ignorance I am a networking novice, but just how exactly do you go about setting up the command file.Do you have to type it in dos mode from the C: prompt
