We use BE to backup our mail databases. My intention is to only backup the VM. Will it causes problems with transaction logs or anything else if I backup my Exchange 2010 VM's without using the VSS options? Not using the VSS options the backups complete successfully. Using Application Aware VSS the backups always fail.

Hi, yes there are known issues with having 3rd party VSS providers on the processed VM, they prevent our application-aware processing from functioning normally. No, not using application-aware processing should not cause any issues to production Exchange during the backup, but you may have issues upon full VM recovery. However, I guess since you are also backing up mail databases separately, you will be able to restore the data from the other backup should the need arise. Thanks.
