Known issue by design, brick level backup (backing up mail boxes) does not
truncate the transaction log. You must do a full backup of the Information
Store to truncate, clear and delete the transaction logs.

Update on this problem.

I started another backup with backup exec. This time, I configured it to
only backup the exchange mailbox stores, and not the single mailbox store.
This was done because the single mailbox backup resulted in a couple of
errors. By only backing up the mailbox store, I was able to get a fully
completed backup from backup exec..and it did remove the transaction logs
this time.

 

This brings me to the conclusion that Netvault is most likely the cause of
the problem. I already opened a call at netvault.

Hi Dennis

 

Backup Exec. (BE) certainly should delete the transaction log files. Don't
know about NetVault I'm afraid. If not you must have a problem or an
incorrect setting. The default setting with the BE Exchange agent is to do a
full backup and flush commiited logs unless you have chaged it?. You are
running the Exchange agent I presume? Depending on what drivers you may be
able  to use NT Backup as a test? Does it flush the logs if so?

 

Hope that helps.

 

Bye for now.

 

Paul.

Hi List,

 

 

Recently, we changed the backup software on our exchange server. Before, we
used Backup Exec 9.0, and the newly acquired backup software is Netvault.
After some time, we noticed an increase in disk space that wasn't there
before.

It turns out that Netvault does not delete the transaction logs after a
successful full backup of the exchange server.

 

To troubleshoot the issue, I enabled the old backup exec backup (that was
still there) to run a backup and see what happened. Well, unfortunately,
backup exec does not remove the transaction logs either..

This sort of gives me the idea that is not really the backup software that
is causing this problem, but exchange itself.

Does anyone ever has a similar problem, or knows how to resolve this issue?

 

Kind regards,

 

Dennis Appelboom
