Exchange 2007 Transaction Logs don't appear to be purged with Backup Exec
Posted on 2011-09-26
Hi all, got a possible issue with either Backup Exec 12.5 Rev 2213 or Exchange 2007.
Since 01-04-2011 the logs in E:\Exchange Server\First Storage Group (I assume these are the Exchange Transaction logs?) have built up day by day, almost to the point where the disk was full up. Now I'm no expert with Backup Exec or Exchange, but am I correct in understanding that these logs should be automatically purged / deleted when each full backup runs?
On the settings for our Full Exchange backup I have backup method [Full - Database & Logs (flush committed logs)] - so I guess it should be deleted logs that it thinks are committed? Would there be any way Backup Exec might not see the logs as being committed, or is that something that Exchange needs to do prior to the backup running?
Apologies for the vague question, but I am very concerned that these logs are filling up, and I'm also concerned that I shouldn't manually delete them manually for fear of damaging Exchange, or harming future backups.
Help would be massively appreciated.
