OES netware and BackupExec 9.0

Ever since upgrading to OES netware on my backup server when the backup
kicks off the server utilization is maxing out and sometimes the server
locks up. I dont get an abend or any error messages the server is just
locked up when I come in the next day and check on it. I even deleted the
server and rebuilt it thinking it was something the upgrade from NW 6 to NW
6.5 SP3.

Its on an older compaq server so I am wondering if its a driver issue of
some type but I dont really know where to begin looking. I dont think that
backup exec uses the driver from compaq it uses its own drivers. I looked on
backup execs site and they dont have any newer driver releases for 9.0 just
for 9.1.

Any ideas? I am thinking of rebuilding the server and putting it back to NW
6.0.

Backup Exec 9.0 is not and was never supported on Netware 6.5. You'll
have to update to 9.1. DOwndating a Server OS to an unsupported one to
keep an unsupported Backup Software seems like a very odd idea.

I was trying to wait for Backup Exec 9.2 to come out. Oh well I guess I will
have to bite the bullet.
