I have 3 exchange 2012 servers. 2 local, one over a wan. All in a DAG. Im looking for a detailed instruction article on adding exchange to Veeam backup, backing up the DAG, and confirming logs are being flushed and how to confirm successful backups. Best practices welcome too.

You set the Backup Job as you would for a normal VM, with one difference....

Guest Processing, and set to FLush Logs

Look at the Job Log, and you should be able to quickly confirm, by checking the Exchange Server logs are flushed!

Exchange 2013 has a ton of logging. I see that some logs flush, other don't.

Sorry, I mean have a look at the DB LOG folder, to see if the logs have been flushed.
