How to use NTBackup to test Exchange 2003 backups/restores on Windows 2003 to compare the backup performance with Backup Exec for Windows Servers.


Environment



Microsoft Exchange 2003


Solution



Please note: Comparing backup performance with NTBackup (the native backup utility in Windows) is not limited to just the throughput rate.  It also can be used as a comparison for troubleshooting backup failures and additional events that can possibly be written to the Windows Event Viewer Logs to expedite the solution of Exchange Backup Failures.
