Ghost corporate 8.0 and SBS2003

I am using Ghost corporate 8.0 to backup SBS2003. It does the base line backup but not the incremental which is scheduled every night. It comes up with the error "..\MBDDATA\E00.log cannot be read, it may be in use". Tried closing SA, IS, MTA but has not helped.

I think you mean, MDBDATA\E00.log.  That's Exchange... and if you used the built-in SBS Backup, it'd back it up without a problem.

Hi,

Please stop the service related to MBDDATA and then try the back up

You could do that, but it would take your mail server off-line for however long the backup takes each night.

Skip the file,  it's the transaction log of Exchange,  it covers the modifications between two backups.   If you succeed in backing up Exchange you don't need these logs.

Hi,

I knew that they were the transaction log of Exchange. I used the command 'net stop msexchangesa' at the command prompt. This disabled services 1. Message Transfer Agent 2. Information Store 3. System Attendant. Then left the server overnight for doing the incremetal backup. Even then the same error "...\EOO.log cannot be read comes up".

Can anyone help please?

Yeah, delete that file.  (http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/248098.htm)

You might want to run ESEUTIL on your Exchange installation as well.

I checked all expert comments. I would now like to close this question.

Well, the problem is that Ghost 8.0 is not really a recommended backup solution for SBS.  So you'll continue to have problems if you are trying to use that for your backup.  Full details on how to back up an SBS are here:  http://sbsurl.com/backup

If anything, this question should be deleted without refund.  There were various answers which were provided that DO resolve the problem.  I don't know what "I checked all expert comments" means... but it does not imply that these suggestions were implemented.
