Backup Exchange 2013

Veeam Logoby Delando » Fri Mar 15, 2013 9:19 am

Hello

Is it possible to backup Exchange 2013 with veem if you choose to close the exchange services before starting the backup? (Untill the support for 2013 is released)

Regards

Yes, sure, why not? ;) Though I believe AAIP should also work...

No, you shouldn't, just treat this VM as any other production critical VM. Btw, what backup mode are you using? Forward or reversed incremental?

Do you mean that you do not see any new backup completion events in the Application event log?

Im using default incremental.

In the Exchange gui you can check when you database was backed up. I can see the one from yesterday, But the one i ran today dont seem to register.

And what about Windows event log? Do you have any events about successful backup there? Do you have "truncate transaction logs" checkbox enabled in the advanced settings of the AAIM processing option?

Ok, thanks for the update. I believe once you resolve VSS issues, your database backup stamp should also be updated.

[MERGED] Exchange 2013: Does not truncate logs?

Veeam Logoby infused » Sat Apr 20, 2013 9:28 am

Just confirming that I need CU1 installed for 6.5 to be able to truncate logs? If not, does anyone know why it's not truncating my logs?
