How fo flush Exchange logs manually

We would like to use a bare metal backup solution on our exchange servers. Essentially the backup solution will create a full image once a week and incremental's every 4 hours the rest of the week. Since an image of the server is taken it does not mark the store as being backed up and flush the logs. I am trying to avoid using circular logging at all cost and would like to setup some type of script that would run after my image completes.

You need to run a full backup to flush the logs properly. It is necessary from a restore point of view as well, rather than having large logs on an image.

You can even run ntbackup for this.
Use ntbackup for a differential backup of the log files. Then ntbackup only backups the log files and flushed them. there is no need for a full backup

you can get rid of log files once they have been committed.

The doc is for Exchange 5.5 and 2000. Get the one for 2003 for the correct steps.
