Small Business Server 2011 backup


As far as I am aware the current version of Backup Exec does not support SBS2011 yet. Can you recommend a backup application which fully supports SBS2011?

Many Thanks

Symantec Backup Exec Server Restore (BESR)

The built in backup on SBS2011 is very good these days, much better than the old NT Backup, however if you want to be able to recover mailboxes or any other advanced backup/restore features I would suggest you look at BackupAssist.

Or an online backup solution to complement the "built in" such as Carbonite or DropBox
Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

Agree with tonyperth

Your best bet is Backup Assist (www.backupassist.com). It uses the internal windows backup engine, but offers very comprehensive reporting and lots of other options. Cost is approx US$350. It is also the choice solution if you still using backup tapes, as it is the cheapest & best solution to run tape backups on Win 2008 (inc R2) via its tape add-in (extra cost).
+1 for backup assist.
