Online maintenance, users and backups
Posted on 2011-09-25
Running Exchange 2007 SP2 on Windows 2008 Server. We are running Single Copy Cluster Exchange servers, Active/ Active/ Passive. Our backups are configured for a FULL on Fridays and incrementals on the other days (to flush the logs)
I remember in Exchange 2000/2003, we configured our backups and online maintenance to avoid conflicting.
1. Is this still the case with Exchange 2007? Or does it not make much of a difference?
2. How does online maintenance affect user experience? We have some departments that access their mailboxes 24/7...not sure how this will work with online maintenance?
3. Am I correct that if online maintenance doesn't finish, this will lead to store growth?
