I understand that we need to make sure that we don’t schedule the Exchange backup job during the mailbox archiving which will take place at night. What about Journal archiving? There is no way to set the schedule for Journal task. Journal archiving happens all the time. It is safe to run the Exchange backup while Journal archiving?
We will have 2 EV servers (one for Journal archiving and other for Mailbox archiving). Should I backup both EV servers at the same time or separate them?
|Mailbox Archiving:||Mon-Fri||9 PM – 4 AM|
|Exchange Backup (incremental):||Mon-Thu||11:30AM – 1:30PM|
|Exchange Backup (Full):||Sat-Sun||it take full 2 day to complete full backup|
|EV Backup (incremental):||Mon-Thu||11:15 PM|
|EV Backup (full):||Fri||11:15 PM|
|SQL Database Backup (Full)||Sun-Sat||11:30 PM|
|SQL Tranasaction Log Backup (FULL)||Sun-Sat||every 2 hours between 8 AM - 9PM|
If you would be kind to give me example on how you schedule your Archiving and Backup. We are using HP DataProtector for Exchange, EV Store/Indexes and Native SQL maintenance for the databases.
Mine biggest concern is when the EV backup completed (will clear the backup mode to normal) before the SQL backup completed. Is there a way to verify the status of the SQL database before the Backup script clear the backup mode?
