Our backup admin quit

Our backup administrator has left the company.  I never realized how mismanaged the backup system was until he left.  He was keeping the system barely above water with many failed jobs.  We have since gotten a temporary backup admin who is making it all look easy.  Jobs are completing.  The system isn’t running out of tapes.  The consultant is making it work and that’s encouraging.  BTW, we are using Backup Exec 11d with a Quantum m2500 robotic tape library.

Lots of stuff to talk about…

I apologize that I haven’t posted anything in a while.  I got married on June 30th and I disconnected from as much as possible for most of June.  There’s a lot going on in my world.  I have been promoted at work, while we are moving to a new location, and several ongoing projects are … ongoing.  Oh, and someone quit.  On the tech front, there’s lots of interesting little news stories out there.  Keep an eye out for all the techno babble to come.  🙂
