Exchange 2010 GRT Incremetal backup very slow

Created: 04 Sep 2013 | 3 comments

As per BE2012 SP2 release notes, one of the "Known Issues Resolved" is the slow backups of incremental Exchange GRT backups...

Well, I've upgraded to SP2 and upgraded the agent on the exchange servers, and so far after a couple of weeks I have not seen any improvement. Has this worked for anyone out there?

Hello Guev007,

Have you verified the update installed  (Go to installation and licensing > installed updates and SP2 should show 

also has the Exchange server been rebooted since the update was installed?  

Make sure Exchange maintenance isnt running during the backup.

If you have antivirus running, exclude the Backup exec processes.

Hi Imosla,

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, SP2 is installed on the media server and the agent on the exchange server is also the newer version.

I'll see about the antivirus exclusion and the Exc maintenance window and post back.

     Do you see the same issue if you run the full/incremental backups non GRT? Additionally are you backing up by modified time or Archive bit?

I hope this posting was helpful
