I currently have Windows 2000 master server with six additional media
servers on a HP ESL9595 16 SDLT tape drive library and a HP MSL5052SL 4
SDLT tape drive library backing up 330+ Windows clients backing up 50TB
a week. I am at Netbackup 6.51. The master has four 733MHz processors
and 2.5GB RAM and it performs fine. I did have to up the RAM by .5GB
when I upgraded from 5.1 to 6.51. The master even backs up 25 clients.

Need some advise, I have master server on Windows 2003, two more other
Windows media servers, two Sun Solaris media servers in the mix, two
physical sites, two tape libraries with LTO-3 tape drives. There are
around 250 backup clients with total 30T in data. It performs well so
far, and it keeps growing in number of clients and data size. I just
started wondering when I should see that the Windows master server start
choking or there is enough room to grow further and maybe consider more
disk based backups, add more media servers.
Does anybody have such experience to run master servers on Windows with
a lot of clients?
