Truncate Exchange logs with VEPA backup using Quiescence Snapshot

Does anybody how to configure the job or Exchange to truncate logs after a VEPA backup using the Quiescence Snaphot option ?

At moment no logs are truncated because Exchange 'thinks' that only a copy or differential backup is being made from the stores.

 

Regards,

Martijn

  • Hello

     

    For to gets application (exchange) logs truncation you must run specific integration backup agent in this case e2010 agent integration. The use of quiescence option guarantee a solid point of restore but logs are not truncated.

    If quiescence is selected, the snapshot process quiesces all the system writers, and the registered application writers. In Windows guest operating systems, the VSS framework freezes or quiesces the applications running in a virtual machine before a snapshot is created. Data Protector performs application-consistent quiescence every time the Use Quiescence option is selected for the backup.

  • Exchange integration agent doesn't work (anymore), it throws me a: [61:3001] Unknown message (code 314)

    Most likley some DP code hase been scrambled, so it doesn't work anymore on certain versions of Exchange, Windows  or .NET

    I don't care and don't have time to run this through support.

    Look. Every other backup Vendor on the world uses Application Aware snapshots for Exchange nowadays and are able to truncate logs afterwards.

    So, I want to make it work with VEPA backups because I need consistent and succesfull VM backups with Exchange Stores and Truncated logs.

    I will use VEEAM explorer to do recoveries whenever it is needed, this is not a very big Exchange server.

    Shouldn't be that hard since every other backup Vendor can make it work.
