[Veritas-bu] Windows flash-backup experiences (again)

We absolutely love it. On average, our backups complete in about half the
time using Flash than using non-Flash backups. The load on the client for
us is significantly less using Flash so it's a win all around. Our
environment is lots and lots of little files and on a 1TB volume, we can
easily see over 30 million files.
The only con we've found is that some Windows sysadmins don't have any
experiences setting up the Windows side of the configurations - especially
on clusters - and keep asking us for how it should be configured. We refer
them back to Microsoft :-).
We're using Flashbackup on Solaris as well and found it even better than
Windows. Perhaps that's because with our Solaris admins, the snapshots
worked the first time :-)
