Problem between NW65sp4a and AS11.1SP1?

This server is NW6.5SP4a and AS11.1sp1. I runs fine as long as you don't
run Arcserve. It then runs a couple jobs(backing up remote servers) after
one or two jobs, it runs out of logical space or memory in general and
starts give you "memory recommendations at the console prompt. I have
tried these suggestestions. Some of which contradict each other. I have
tried running memcalc and taking those suggestions. In the end, after a
couple jobs, it will go crazy again. This server was fine back when we
had NW5.1 and AS11.1 no patches on it. I'm thinking of reformatting again
and going back! Anyway, I have NW6.5SP4a on it because the majority of my
production servers are running that at the moment and I like to keep the
backup servers the same if possible. I am wondering if there is some
inherent problem between the OS and AS versions. I haven't found anything
on CA's website about it, but thought I'd ask. Any thoughts?

Use NW65SP5 and the newer server.exe NW65os5a. That combo runs fine here
with AS11.1 SP1 and the newer CA patches after SP1

I'll give it a try. I would assume it doesn't matter that it would be
backing up servers that are on 6.5sp4? Thanks for your help.

It didn't here for quite a while, although all the others are now finally
on SP5

Problem between NW65sp4a and AS11.1SP1?

even with the best memtuning possible you'll get into this sort of trouble
provided that the filesystems to be backed up are big enough in terms of
the number of file and directories.
apart from turning off the caching logic of tsafs you need to add the
following lines to the

[NetWare Backup/Restore]

sections of asconfig.ini

UseMultipleReadThreads=FALSE
PerformanceNonNakoma=TRUE

if you're backing up via an agent you'll have to add these settings (most
likely also the section as such) to the client's config as well.
