I also use BE 8.x - but am a former longtime Arcserve user.

How long are you down for the backup?

Don't the users have a problem with this?

Also, how do you know exactly when to reload the agents, or do you just " tune" this as time goes on?

We are using Veritas Backupexec with wonderful results.  We use a cron job to shut down the POA agents during backup and then to restart the agents after backup.

Has "saved my bacon" countless times....

Looking for info on what backup software seems to be
"the best" for Novell 5.x and GroupWise 5.x combinations.

What have you experienced ? Arcserve 7 ., Backup Exec or
some other option ?

I've been using Arcserve for 5 years and this latest version
is not that great. Support has been terrible. 24hrs+ for a return call.

Thanks for your help.
