Exchange 2010 Log Backups

Veeam Logoby SimonGreen » Tue Jan 12, 2016 9:51 am

All,

We're currently using VEEAM to backup our Exchange 2010 environment which works brilliantly.

Is it possible to run log backups only between full snapshot backups of Exchange 2010 using VEEAM? Ideally I'd like to take a snapshot of logs at 1 hour intervals to minimise data loss in the event of failure.

Appreciate if anyone could advise.

Regards,

Simon

You mean you want to truncate Exchange logs outside of ordinary VM backup schedule?

I would like to see a feature similar to SQL LOG Backup which only copies Exchange Logs and truncates them afterwards.
Regular VM Backup of the whole Exchange Mailbox Role VM is very resource consuming, even with CBT, as there are always many small blocks changed.
With the Snapshot Removal optimizations of vSphere 6 we finally have the ability to do an exchange backup during the day, which lead to service disruption before when removing the VM Snapshot.
But still a simple Log backup (e.g. every hour) would be much more efficient in my opinion. Works great for SQL Servers!

I silently hoped that such a feature would come with V9. Maybe V9.1?

Ok, so, you're after helper job collecting Exchange-specific data to guarantee a point-in-time recovery (should need be).

Cannot comment on our roadmap, but to date we haven't received too many requests for this functionality.

Thanks.
