Backup Exec System Recovery (BESR) is not truncating Microsoft Exchange transaction logs during a backup
If future backups do not truncate the logs, there may be an issue with the Exchange VSS writer. Verify the writer status by doing the following;
-Open a command prompt
-Type "vssadmin list writers" and press enter
-Look for the writer named "Microsoft Exchange Writer"
-The status of this writer should be listed as " Stable".
If the writer is not listed, sometimes a simple reboot will cause it to start working again.
After a reboot if the writer is still not listed or the status is not stable, the Exchange VSS writer is not functioning properly. Please follow the instructions in this technote:
