feature request: backup exchange logs periodically

Veeam Logoby frankive » Thu Jul 23, 2015 3:15 pm

backup the sql transaction logs every 15 min. is very cool!
I would really like to see the same thing for exchange 2013/2016!

No, you're not missing anything, Frank. We've had close to zero requests for this functionality in the past 8 years (unlike for SQL), which is why it is not available.

Although it would be a grateful addition I would rather create a DAG or run backup jobs more often.

I also would like to have this as I think log backups would be more space efficient than image backups

But even if you would do log backups... You still need to take an image backup at a certain point in time to truncate the logs... So where do you see the space savings? (Or are you talking about taking less image based backups, like only once a day versus x a day...)

That's what I mean. And why should the log backup not truncate?

MKretzer,

I am not sure if truncating the logs before you actually take a full backup of the database is a good practice. Maybe Exchange admins will tell me differently that this is perfectly possible. I will need to steal their brain on this one :-)

Nothing has changed in this regard. Priority has been given to more demanded features.

However, consider your voice counted.

+1 I have slow storage, would be nice to do this as well. Whenever the snaps are removed (in VMware, not using storage integration) it freezes exchange randomly. Causing random user issues with outlook plugins.

Actually, this feature won't remove the need for VM snapshot creation and removal... we still need to create the full image-level backup periodically, as it captures the state to which the logs that will be backed up periodically for the next day would be rolled onto.
