BESR 2010 Backup Strategies/Plan
Posted on 2010-01-04
We just purchased 3 copies of Backup Exec System Recovery 2010 to backup the following servers:
Exchange 2007 Server
Financial Application with an SQL backend
I am trying to develop a formal schedule for backing up these servers. I've thought of the following methods thus far:
1. Perform complete full backups of each server nightly.
2. Perform complete full backups on Monday and Fridays with incrementals on Tues, Weds, Thurs, Sat, & Sun
3. Peform weekly full backups on each server and do standard data backups with NTbackup the remaining days.
I want to make sure I haven't missed any gottchas for timing around Active Directory during a recovery for example.
