Hi Experts,

I`m planning to install some Windows Updates on our Exchange-Machine.
So I would like to make a Backup with Veeam Backup and Replication before.

I would like to have the Exchange server in a consistent state, so that no changes can be made and I can restore that backup if I find an error.

How can I set the server offline?
How do you handle that?

Build a virtual lab with veeam run your updates in the lab if everything works install the updates in production.

You can stop all the exchange services on your exchange server (information Store) then do the updates and start the exchange service and do testing.

I would recommend the first option.
