"all necessary transaction logs, check point files" etc. 
 
Some backup products (e.g., BE) will back up them all, some backup
products (e.g., ntbackup) only back up the necessary files.

        Hi Praveen

         

        When you take backup of complete information store, irrespective
of the backup type followed , all transaction logs, check point files
would be backed up

         

        Regards

        Ripon

        http://www.MSExchange.org/ 

        Thanks for the info. Initialy i used NT backup utility and now i
am using Arc server backup. I am taking regular backups. But when i read
this artical
http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Exchange-Dial-tone-Restore-Method-Pa
rt2.html in fig 10 you can see a folder called "logs" is selected but i
cant locate it in my NT backup or Arc server utility. I know that logs
are stored in <drive:>\program files\exchsrv\MDBDATA\ by default, but
these are not listed in NT backup utility or Arc backup so that i can
just click and select the logs to be backed up. I need to manualy go to
the directory and select it. 

        So i want to know should i manualy select these logs or if i
just select storage goups will this take care of logs also?? Can you
please explain.

         

        Regards

                Praveen,

                 

                    You should be using an Exchange aware backup package
(built-in backup on WS03 included) which handles the complexities of
taking a consistent set of files. The detail (up to a point) is not
yours to worry about. That said your backup is no use unless you're
practiced in restoring it under a varying set of circumstances and then
a knowledge of the details will be very useful. Get backing up and aim
to understand what is going on and practice recovery. Needless to say
you can drown in information from Microsoft and there are several worthy
Exchange 2003 books which can help out. Practice recovery in the lab is
essential.

                 

                    As you're asking the question I presume you're not
well acquainted with the complexities this subject can offer. Keep it
simple to start with and backup to tape or disk using Microsoft's
built-in backup would be my initial approach. Once you understand better
what you're after the complexities if needed can follow.

                 

                Regards, Roger Mackenzie (Glasgow University)

                Hi,

                 

                When i just backup Storage groups will it automatically
take backup of associated log & chk files or do i have to specifically
take the backup of these critical file?

                 

                I use Exchange 2003 SP1 on windows 2003 

                 

                Regards

                Praveen R
