2 weeks ago, Exchange Server 2007 crashed and we had to create a new server. We decided to Virtualize Exchange this time. However, Backups have not been lasting about 3 hours more and there fore timing out(23 Hrs) before it gets the rest of the servers. The transfer rate has essentially been cut in half going from 1000 MB/Min to 500 MB/Min on the Exchange Server. All appropriate exclusions have been added to the Antivirus scanning. The AV has officially been ruling out as the culprit since everything occurred after virtualizing Exchange. The hardware specs are:
OS: Windows Server 2003 R2
Exchange Server 2007 - 64 Bit Windows Server 2003
Running Vcenter 2.5 on Windows Server 2003
Any suggestions on trouble shooting this? Very much appreciated. Thanks.
