Stable backup of Exchange 2007
I’m struggling to get a stable GRT backup going on my Exchange 2007 SP3 servers.
I’m using BE 2012, but it hasn’t been stable since I started using BE, 11d I think the first was.
I’m backing three Exchange 2007 servers, one local and two over WAN.
One is fairly far away, but all are connected over 100Mbit.
All three has 4 databases, all around 100GB each.
I tried Dedupe (but only one can be used on one sever so that’s is an issue), and Full/Incremental. Full backups are often ok but take forever and put a heavy load on the WAN-link. Time is the big problem.
Incremental may run OK for a few runs but then they fail and you have to take a new Full over the WAN again. Even the local server will fail.
One error that’s coming up a lot:
Final error: 0xe00002f7 - Cannot extract mailbox messages from the Exchange backup.
V-79-57344-759 - Unable to complete the operation for the following reason: VFF Open Failure. This can be caused by low memory or disk resources.
But there are not memory or disk problems.
Also a lot of: Snapshot technology error (0xE000FED1): A failure occurred querying the Writer status.
Is there a stable solution for this or should I give up?
We have a SCR-solution for Disaster recovery so this is only for single object kind of recovery.
