Hi,

I'm running backup exec 9.1 on a Windows 2000 server (SP4). I have a disabled user account whose Exchange 2000 mailbox cannot be backed up by Veritas' backup exec. I get the following errors:

0xa000fe09 - The directory is invalid

Directory not found. Can not backup directory USERNAME and its subdirectories.


Any ideas, anyone??

Thanks.

Does the directory still exist? Do you really need to backup a disabled account. You could delete the account if it's not needed

yes, the directory still exists, and yes, I still need to back up this disabled account.

Backup of a disabled user's mailbox is impossible, because when a user is disabled in AD, all objects related to his account are disabled as well. This is by design. For this reason, Exchange won't deliver mail to a disabled user.

View VERITAS' Document ID 239006 if you don't believe me :D

If the account is hidden from the GAL BackupExec will not back it up either.
