Step

Action

Step 1

Create an Exchange backup job.

See About backing up Exchange 2003/2007.

Step 2

Set default options for the Advanced Open File Option.

For Exchange Server 2007/2010 resources, Backup Exec automatically performs snapshot backups. You do not need to select options for the Advanced Open File Option.

See Setting default options for the Advanced Open File Option.

Ensure that either the Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service option or the Automatically select open file technology option is selected.

If resources that are not supported for snapshot backup are included in the backup selection list, check Process logical volumes for backup one at a time to allow the job to complete with errors.

Step 3

Schedule or start the backup job.
