RE: Backup doesn't Flush Logs

You said you ran NTbackup.exe to try and flush the logs.  Did you run
that on the Exchange computer or did you use the backup computer to do
it?  When you install Exchange, it installs an updated version of
NTbackup, which has the snap-ins (or whatever you call them) that do the
backup correctly.

Joel,

I had a similar problem when I first installed Exchange 2k also.  I
noticed later that I had to have the Exchange Administrative tools
loaded on my backup server before the backup of exchange was successful
and the logs then flushed properly.  Don't know if this helps, but
thought I'd mention it.

I use Veritas Backup Exec v8.5 (with exch2k agent) to back up my
Exchange 2000 Server (SP2).  I have a problem in that the log files
don't flush when I perform a full backup.  I contact Veritas who said I
should try a Windows Backup, again the log files don't flush on a full
backup.
I moved the contents of the MDBDATA folder following MS instructions to
give the following.  All moves appear fine as new logs go into the
correct partition.  However they fill the partition every fortnight or
so.

C:(8GB) - System Drive, Exchange installed in C:\Program Files\ExchSrvr
D:(4GB) - AD, DFS Roots
E:(10Gb)        - IS Logs file (*.log that is usually in MDBDATA)
F:(30Gb)        - Information Store Files (priv1.edb etc.etc.)

I don't want to enable Circular Logging. And I've even tried adding a
policy which flushes log files older than 7 days, but doesn't seem to do
anything.  The machine is also a DC.

Any ideas?

Cheers,

Joel Mansford.
