[MERGED] Exchange DAG backup

Post by kloppo » Jul 15, 2019 10:40 am

Hi Folks,
I'm will backup a Exchange DAG Cluster with multiple nodes, each DB has 3 copies.
For my understanding I need to backup these DBs 3 times everytime wich will lead into massive data consumption. Is there a way to Backup only one DB copy per DB?
These are all physical servers, is there a way to Dedup the backup data after Backup without a Dedup Appliance?

Thanks

Hi Florian and welcome to the Veeam community!

You can protect your exchange DAG with Veeam B&R 9.5U4 but there is no way to backup only one DB.
Please review the discussion above as it contains related information about DAG protection. Thanks!

How is the Dedup effiiency on VAW backups? I need to backup 4 physical DAG Members, will they be deduped? All will be backuped in one single job.

Whenever agent is managed by backup server and you use failover cluster job type regular Veeam B&R deduplication engine kicks in (since data for all the nodes is going to be stored within single backup file), so you can expect deduplication ratio similar to vm backup jobs.

P.S. Please keep in mind that workaround to protect single node with all the DB copies instead of entire DAG works perfectly.

Hi,

Regarding backup option to only backup the passives for DAG deployments is that feature in v10?

Best regards!
Victor
