Hey all, I am having a hard time getting my backup strategy with Exchange to be successful. It is usually hit or miss if my backups are successful or not. With a variation of problems from missing/corrupt data to access denied errors. I am wondering if my resource selections have anything to do with this problem?? Current setup is: Veritas BackupExec 9.1 with exchange module. Exchange 2003 standard on windows 2003 standard. Single Exchange box appx 100 mailboxes. Single storage group and various public folders..... Circular logging is also currently enabled on the storage group. I have selected only the following resource selections for backup otherwise my backups would fail: Exchange Mailboxes (excluding the ones with corrupt data, appx 5) Shadow Copy components.... I run a manual seperate backup of my microsoft information store cause it seems if i include it in the same full backup it fails.... Should i be doing these seperate? I run daily m-f FULL DAILY BACKUPS flushing commited logs. What would be the best practice for backing up my box so that i can have a full system state in case of full restore and also in case we wanted to restore a single mailbox/folder...???? Thanks in advance!
