We are getting about 200 MB/minute maximum on our IBM Ultrium tape drive. This is a new Compaq ML370 with 2 gig of memory and four 3.4GHz Xeon processors. The drive is attached to a Ultra 160 SCSI card. This is all we want this server to do. I installed Backup Exec 9.2 and the server is Netware 6.5 SP 5.

All branch servers rsync data across the WAN and on to this server. We would love to make the local backups go away, but this is WAY too slow. We are backing up 300 gig of data. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
