Backup Exec 12.5 Exchange Agent Slow
Posted on 2010-01-06
I have a backup server running BE 12.5 with the Exchange agent loaded. When I setup a job to backup the information store on the Exchange server using the agent, it only reaches a max speed of 100MB/Min, which takes all day.
To verify that the network wasn't the issue I did a local backup of Exchange and then copied to the backup file over from our Exchange server to our backup server. That only took an hour to transfer the 40GB, so I know that the network isn't the issue.
This is Exchange 2003 and there are just a couple stores for a total of 40GB. It takes about 7 hours to backup right now with BE.
