Transactions Logs & Backup
Posted on 2004-11-02
I have a problem where my transaction logs are starting to fill up my local C:\ on my Exchange 2003 server. I've done some reading and it's seems that the logs are hanging around because my Arcserve v9.0 (build 2050) backup isn't completing all stages.
Basically the backup of my F:\program files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA is failing. When I check my backup tape contents, the .stm & .edb files are not backed up. However I am getting a full brick level backup as well as a full backup of my C:\ drive. The error in arcserve is as follows:
E8604 Failed to startbackup EC=invalid userid or password
This has only started to happen in the last couple of days, before this everything has been working fine for a good couple of months. I've tried a few things with Arcserve but still have the same problem, and I'm running out of disk space.
I could move the transaction logs on a different disk or parition, but this isn't really necessary if my arcserve backup is functioning correctly.
Can you help ?
