VMLevel Exchange DAG Backups

Created: 24 Jan 2013 • Updated: 01 Mar 2013 | 4 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

We perform DAG backups at the moment over the network from Backup Exec and i read that Symantec does not support DAG over VMware, is this still the case? will there be any plans for allowing this?

From the 2012 SCL:

Note: The Backup Exec 2012 Agent for Hyper-V does not support Exchange 2007 LCR, CCR or SCC and Database Availability Groups (DAG's) for Exchange 2010

due to the distributed nature of these applications beyond a single Guest virtual machine. To protect these applications when they are distributed across multiple Guest

Virtual Machines, please use the Backup Exec Agent for Microsoft Exchange inside of each of the Guest Virtual Machines to protect them.

It is not on any current roadmap that I am aware of.

Many Thanks for replying. Does Netbackup support this? or any backup product that you know of?

Hi

When it comes to Net backup it also doesn't support Application GRT backup for Exchange in DAG so it would be supporting VM hosting application on it and not multiple VM like DAG.

Thanks
