Vranger 6.0.0.30131 + Exchange logs

Hi,

I have a little problem with Vranger and Exchange2010

So we have 1 physical server and 4 VWserver

- File server
- Backup
- Exchange
- DBserver

and 1 PC with 1 synology NAS and there is Vranger installed...

now Vranger make backup incremental each day and 1 full pro week on the synology.

Now the logs from exchange isn't auto delete when the backup is finish...
Im surching on internet to find some guide or solutions and NOTHING....

VSS tools is installed and configure for the exchange server but I don't understand why they are still there...

I must configure windows backup to delete the exchange logs or tomorrow our server will be down...


Someone have one Idea about this problems ?
best regards

I was going through Vranger backup solution and found it support VSS aware backup.
as per below line .. it should truncate  exchange logs

Agentless  implementation of Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) ensures application-consistent snapshots for critical transactional servers with the option to truncate application logs

to start with troubleshooting , first verify Vss writer state on the exchange server

to check vss status execute below command on the exchange server

Vssadmin list writers

if any of the writer is failed then it wont take Consistent snapshot for the exchange.

2) once backup get complete verify event logs and see if you see any error events in vss category

Hello, I've found the solution !

1)@ takecoffe thank's for your help

2) when you configure the backup in vranger you musst activate this point:

Option selection; Enable guest Quiescing

and in Vranger I have the main job (backup all server) and the job for the exchange server.

Only the job for exchange server was configure with the option enable guest Quiescing. next I'de modify the main job and active this option too and today logs was delete !

finaly you must configure this option in the main job...

Thanks
best regards
