Exchange DB snapshot backup and transaction log incremental backups

Created: 24 Sep 2012

Hi All


I am unsure if htis is possible and wanted to see if anyone oculd confirm before an install in a few weeks.


We want to run VMware GRT enabled snapshot abckups of an Exchange 2003 server.  This will truncate the transaction logs etc.


During the day,every 4 hours, we wanted to backup the transaction logs.  Is this possible through snapshots ( I imagine not) or does it have to be done through the NBU client agent.


If it is through the client agent with a different policy does netbackup understand that hte logs are all from the same place and so we are able to recover the system correctly.


All thoughts appreciated.
