We also use NTBackup (in Win2k) on the Exchange box to back up only the
Exchange IS and directory to a file. Then, our ArcServe file system backup
picks up the file. We therefore avoid needing an agent.

Subject: [exchangelist] Backing up Exchange Server

Hi all,

Just starting to look at getting an Exchange server in our
organization. What different backup options are there for Exchange

We are using Veritas Backup Exec at the moment, but don't have the
Exchange Agent option... Is there a way to get Exchange to dump its
whole database to a file every night, and back that up?

The documentation I can find on the MS site deals with using the
Backup Utility to make backups of the server, which I don't really
want to do, because then I'll have 2 different types of backup to

thanks, bye!
