log truncation backups

exchange and sql don't like log truncation happening at the same time on multiple VMs in the same cluster.
really dont want to create a separate job for each exchange server or sql server.
is there a way to create a job with all exchange servers and tell it to process 1 VM at a time?

Hello George.

Are you talking about Exchange DAG? The only valid approach is to use job chaining and to process DAG nodes in separate backup jobs. Take a look at How to: Back up Exchange Database Availability Groups (DAGs) with Veeam Backup & Replication blog post for more details.

Veeam Support - Case # 03051477
upgraded to U3
rebooted servers to clear writer retry able error
still getting warning

Dima,

we have an exchange 2016 dag with 8 members. 4 of the members in site A hold activate databases and 4 of the members in site B hold the passive databases. Most jobs warn with the below error message, it isn't always the same server.

Code: Select all
VSS: Backup job failed. Cannot notify writers about the 'BACKUP FINISH' event. A VSS critical writer has failed. Writer name: [Microsoft Exchange Writer]. Class ID: [{76fe1ac4-15f7-4bcd-987e-8e1acb462fb7}]. Instance ID: [{d9ab8eb1-1e46-4db1-b84f-e70093814a80}]. Writer's state: [VSS_WS_FAILED_AT_BACKUP_COMPLETE]. Error code: [0x800423f3].

vdellachiesa,

Is that a chained backup jobs setup (like explained in the blog post) or you keep all DAG nodes in one backup job? Thanks.
