Hi,

Can someone confirm that the following can be excluded from the backup. The DHCP can be done at the bottom and  the search items can be ignored. Also I have a full backup of exchange databases as it has the exchange agent on there.

Thanks,

Yes, you can exclude Files and/or folders from the backups. If you drill down in the selections tab, uncheck those folders and the errors should not appear. I've done this with Backup Execx 12.5 and it works fine. What version do you have?

Not sure what you're asking--non of this looks like it has to be backed up and it's not really necessary to exclude it either unless you just don't like seeing those warnings. :)

I would not try a restore if that list of Exchange files were not backed up. I use BE 12.5 and backup the Microsoft Information Store (Exchange) in a seperate job with the GRT option enabled. I'm not sure what version you have, but oyu should check this and make sure the option is set on the Exchange tab in BE.

I think GRT is enabled by default.  The stuff that is not backing up can't be backed up while in use, only real way to back up Exchange is to request the data from Exchange and not try to back up the files directly.

so to conclude as long as I am backing up the information store exclude all of the above and it will be ok on a restore ?

Yes and it'd better be since you can't back them up that way anyway. :)

Important: Don't try and backup Exchange by backing up only the files. In the file selection, you need to specifily select Microsoft Information Store which includes NTFS permissions, registry keys and all the files that support Exchange. The GRT in BE 12.5 is an option that has to be selected. Don't assume it is on unless you se it yourself.

The Open File Option should be turned off and GRT should be on for all Exchange backups.

This is 11d and in the Microsoft Exchange settings we have backup method full - db and logs flush commited logs, enable the restore of individual mail messages and folders, perform consitency check before backing up when using volume shadow copy service vss snapshot provider and continue with backup if consistency check fails. Also if exchange 2007 backup source is lcr or ccr - backup from the passive mode and if not available try the active copy. Any comments ?

Thx
