Hello all,


   I am wondering about the correct process to backup SRS in my Exchange
mixed mode environment.  I have found articles to recover SRS if a
backup was not made, but I can not find out the correct process to
backup this service.


  Since the SRS is an .EDB format, I assume that an Exchange aware
backup utility is needed to back this file up.  However, my Netvault
Exchange application does not allow me to specify the SRS directory for


  I exclude the Program Files/Exchsrvr directory from system backups,
and was wondering if I am able to include the SRS directory in the
system backup.  My gut feeling is no....  This is where I need your
help/advise on the correct way to backup SRS.
