I want to back up exchange 2000 once a week.  I've read a couple of different ways to do so but want to know from someone who's dealt with it allot.  If I use NT backup and backup mdbdata, is that enough or should I back up anything else.  Also, do I need to dismount the stores before doing so?

Invest in Veritas and get the agent for Exchange.

This will allow you to backup mailboxes within the store.

hi you shoud consider backing up to tape (40gb) dds or more and use the backup that comes bundled in windows 2000 server and make a bat of the file select the exchnage in backup and use shedule tasks. i have that in my business it works fine and i change tapes every day!
or if you have windows 2003 server use the shadow copies!

What are shadow copies and what exactly are you backing up in exchange?  The info store, mdbdata, mailboxes only?

shadow copies in the basic copie of a folder but it only copies the files or folders that are modifies. in windows 2003 server you have that option only in windows 2003 server. but it dependes on your o.s. if you use windows 2000 server use backup it is much effective and more secure.

I've noticed that when I run eseutil to see the last time the DB was backed up, all the veritas backups don't show, yet if I run NT backup on the info store, it always shows.  My objective here is to have a secondary backup to veritas and to manage the log files which continue to grow madly.  

So is shadowing a sort of incremental backup?
