Is it backup of Exchange Database or Incremental ?
Check log sequence with command

eseutil /ml "Location of Log folder\E00" (E00 is the Generation of that storage group)

Is both Mailbox database and Public database in the same SG or different ?
If there is break in Log sequence the backups cannot complete ..... we need to work around that situation and try to move all logs before the sequence breaks and then try backup ....


But need to understand the situation first correctly :)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

So check the Log sequence and if possible take the data into .txt.

eseutil /ml "Location of Log folder\E00" (E00 is the Generation of that storage group)

So what i understand is this is causing the issue.

So simple that you will have to Dismount the Database move all ".log" ".chk" ".jrs" ".temp or .tmp" files out of the location.

You should have only .edb file and nothing else and then mount ..... this will create new set of log files and you should then be able to take good backup :)

If still any doubts buzz me back !

Thanks. .  I have 4 Databases under this location. Do I have to stop any exchange services before I Dismount databases and what happened if databases are failed to Mount after moving the log files in to different location.

No need to stop any service to dismount .... Is the Exchange 2007 CCR or something or just a Standalone ??

Once you Dismount a Database goes into Clean shutdown and thats all is needed to mount database without any other logs or information :)

Hi Rancy,

Thanks i have successfully Backed-up full Exchange server. Quick question going forward the transaction logs should be deleted automatically after the full backup or do i need to delete them Manually.  I have unchecked- Enable Circular logging option.

Once again Thanks you are a star *********

Thanks Tif01 ....... looks good to hear such comments :)

Quick question going forward the transaction logs should be deleted automatically after the full backup or do i need to delete them Manually - They will be Purged once the Full backup completes :)

Once you have the Circular logging disabled ... hope its creating many Log files in the location ..... reason i ask is cause once you Enable or Disable "Circular logging" it requires a Information Store service restart :)

Thats too many Starts :) ....... Thanks once again !!
