Enterprise Vault backup to tape strategy ?
Created: 11 Dec 2013 | 14 comments
Can someone give me input to suggest what is the best method or timing for the Backup strategy.
As at the moment the current 3rd party backup application called HP Data Protector capturing the following items:
- Open VaultStore Partition (1.2 TB NTFS 98% full)
- Index location (1 TB 65% full)
- Message Queue (4 GB)
- C:\ (60 GB)
those four components took more than 4 days to backup to the tape, during this time nothing goes into the EV archive as per my understanding, which leaves me only 2 days over the weekend to do the archiving of Exchange Journal mailbox (contains more than 210.000 emails) and the normal Exchange users mailbox which doesn't seems to catch up as per the policy to archive anything older than 6 months.
what is the proper way to perform the EV 9 backup to tape to reduce the backup window ?
is that behaviour is normal in the EV environment ?
