Exchange Incremental backup

Veeam Logoby Gve » Thu May 18, 2017 12:47 pm

Hello
I have a DAG exchange with 10 databases of 1tb each.
All databases are on the same disk.

Actualy I backup it with an old CA ArcserveBackup.
Full backup on Saturday (EDB + transactions logs) et Incremetal Backup on week days.
The incremental cycles, backup only transaction logs, not EDB. It's the only way to have a backup every day. The full backup could take 2 ou 3 days (10 Tb)

Can i do that with Veeam ?

Another question, is Veeam capable of serialize backup Database with one VSS snapshot by database ?
My server can not conserve one Snapshot open during the backup of all database. The workload is too important and the differential VSS shadow storage grow too fast.

That I need :

Start Backup
Take VSS snapshot
Integrity check database01
Backup Database01
truncate log Database01
Close snapshot
Take Vss snapshot
Integrity check database02
Backup Database02
truncate log Database02
Close snapshot

Regards.

Hi Guillaume, Veeam B&R is an image-based solution and will be able to perform daily incremental backups (including transaction logs truncation) of the entire VM, copying only changes occurred inside guest OS since the last job run. Also please find a wide list of Exchange DAG backup recommendations in this thread.

Thanks for you answer
I understand in your answer Veeam can only perform a full image backup.

But if we look SQL server, Veeam are perfectly capable to do a log backup job. It"s the role of job "SQL Transaction Log Backup"
Today I backup every 15min 800 SQL databases by this way with Veeam B&R.

Is not possible with exchange server ??

Currently it is not possible, but we've already had a number of requests for this functionality.
