I have an Active/Passive Exchange 2003 Cluster. Exchange databases are stored on an Equilogic SAN Device. I would like to use Acronis True Image 9.5 to image both Exchange servers in the cluster. I need to know the proper way to do this and what services to stop. A sample batch file would be appreciated.
The purpose of the image is to be able to restore a properly functioning Exchange Server as quickly as possible and as a safety net before applying Microsoft patches and updates.
I am using Symantec Backup Exec to do a full backup of the Exchange data on a daily basis.
