Question re Exchange .log files
Posted on 2014-01-27
I notice that on my Exchange 2010 server there are thousands of .LOG files of the form E00000500C.log - I mean 180,000 of them.
As I understand it these log files contain details of email traffic and they need to be consolidated with the actual Exchange database - is that correct?
From what I've read thus far it seems that backing up Exchange will do this. At present I only to a VMware VDR local image of said server and a Veeam offsite replication of it.
Should I set up a simple old fashioned full backup of that server to sort these log files out or is there some witchcraft involved here? The aim is to maybe have less data being replicated off-site as the WAN link is slow.
