Backup Exec 2010 Exchange Question
We are running Exchange 2003, I just ordered backupexec 2010 and while waiting on the hardware for the backup unit to get in I wanted to clear up a couple things. We will be installing this on Windows 2008 R2
We are switching from Netbackup. With Netbackup we ran the information store backup and it would backup the whole DB and flush out the transaction logs each full backup (don't recall if the daily backups (incremental) flushed any transaction logs or not) for disaster recovery. We then had a second backup that ran Individual Mailbox backups, so we could restore one email if needed and not the whole store.
My question is, reading the best practices for backing up exchange, it says to run a full backup with GRT enabled for individual messages to be restored. Does this perform a full store backup (in case we need it for disaster recovery) and flush out the transaction logs + allow us to do individual mail item restores? Or do I need to do the same setup as before, one backup for the whole store + transaction logs, and a separate one for the individual message to backup/restore just one item?
Second it says "Exchange 2007/2010 does not support individual mailbox backup" does that mean if we upgrade to exchange 2007 we can only do mailbox store level backups? (So in other words, we can't restore individual messages with exchange 2007?).
Thanks for your help!
