Notes for configuration of VMware policies that protect Exchange Server
To back up an Exchange Server in a virtual machine, you configure a full backup using thepolicy type. Log truncation is optional. Granular Recovery Technology (GRT) is automatically provided in the VMware backup.
Only the details specific to protecting Exchange Server are covered here. For complete details on how to create a VMware policy, see the NetBackup for VMware Administrator's Guide.
For NetBackup to successfully truncate logs after a backup, the following apply:
You must install the Veritas VSS provider.
The ASC job must detect that the Veritas VSS provider is installed.
You must first perform a full VMware backup without log truncation. Without this initial full backup, the ASC job fails. When this backup is complete, then enable log truncation in the policy.
The databases must be active, mounted, not in the exclude list, and protectable.
Note the following when you configure a VMware policy for Exchange Server backups:
You cannot configure an incremental backup of Exchange with a VMware policy. Instead, you must create an MS-Exchange-Server policy for Exchange incremental backups. If you attempt to back up Exchange with a VMware incremental policy, the Application State Capture (ASC) job fails. However, the VMware backup job is successful. Use caution if you use both a VMware policy for full backups and an Exchange policy for incremental backups. Ensure that the backups are scheduled to occur at distinct times.
The backup history is not saved for a VMware backup that protects Exchange Server. It does not apply with VMware backups because NetBackup protects only the databases whose active copy is on the virtual machine.
You may encounter problems if you selectfor the . When you browse for and select the virtual machine for the VMware policy, the appropriate address or client name may not be returned. If this problem occurs, use instead.
