Technical Solution



An incremental or differential catalog job from a backup which includes Exchange GRT  fails even though the backup completes


Final error: 0xe000fe21 - An invalid path or file name was specified.
Final error category: Job Errors

For additional information regarding this error refer to link V-79-57344-65057


This will happen if the full backup is to a different location than the incremental/differential backup, and the full is no longer available for the catalog job to play back the Exchange logs.


If running Exchange incremental/differential backups to disk then the full also needs to be on disk in order for Exchange GRT to work.
