This video provides an overview of NBU Exchange Granular Recovery.
Dear friend can any one tell me the the reason why we are unable to restore GRT from incremental or differencial backups.
the reason has to do that the full backup image is being mounted and browsed to extract the item. With incremental or differential backups there isn't a full image so it requires extra development to generate a synthetic backup image on the fly for browsing all the GRT items. The good news is that you can still have 1 Exchange policy in NetBackup with a full and differential (or incremental) schedule. It's only when you browse to do the restore that you won't be able to "crack open" the incremental/differential backups to browse for items. We hope to have that in a future NetBackup release.

is there any document which i can follow and implement the Exchange granular backup in NBU 6.5.4
Any comment will be appreciated. Mark as Solution if your query is resolved
Thanks in Advance
i did it
Installing Microsoft Services for NFS on Windows Server 2003
Microsoft Services for NFS need to be installed on Windows Server 2003. This option is available on the Windows Server installation CD.
1. Install Microsoft Services for NFS from the Windows Server installation CD.
- Start the Windows Components Wizard.
- Click Other Network File and Print Services and then click Details.
- Click Services for NFS and then Details.
- Ensure the following items are checked:
5. Confirm the environment PATH variable includes the path to mount command: default location is "C:\WINDOWS\MsNfs\".
Repeat this step for each client.
Do this on NBU server also. (in my case i have one machine which is Master/Media server)
Exchange Granular Backup
according to this article, GRT backups are not supported on OST devices (DataDomain).
Am I missing something?
the video mentioned an overhead while netbackup performed the GRT processing at around 80% of the backup job.
please can someone confirm what is meant by overhead - i.e. is this cpu/memory or available disk space? i have run perf mon on all items during the backup and nothing appears to get hammered.....
the reason i ask is that whenever this backup is run with GRT to Pure disk the server suffers a stop error and restarts.
the current exchange server spec = windows server 2003 enterprise 32bit/exchange server 2003 - cpu = 2 x dual core and 2 gb memory - i plan to upgrade to 6gb as exchange server 2003 can utilise up to 4 gb [the /3 switch is already in place on the boot.ini file]
nebtackup v7.0.1 - upgrading to 7.1 imminently
many thanks in advance for any advice offered
