Backup exec 8.6 back and restoration of Exchange
Posted on 2007-12-05
I've recently taken control of a Windows 2000 box, running Exchange 2000 and Veritas Backup Exec 8.6
When looking at the backup configuration, although the exchange tab of the job is set to Full, the "Microsoft Exchange Mailboxes" tickbox on the selections tab is not ticked.
My predecessor seems to believe that this means the Exchange DB/store is being backed up, but individual mailboxes are not (ie Id have to restore the entire thing to pull out a mailbox).
I have a feeling it's not backing up anything to do with Exchange.
Can anyone confirm either way? The job log doesnt mention anything about Exchange!
