Backup exchange 2007 server in windows 2008

Postby guest » Sat Oct 25, 2008 2:49 pm

Q: We've deployed a test exchange 2007 server in a new domain on Windows Server
2008 64bit and oen of our techs is saying that Windows Server 2008 doesn't
have NTBackup anymore. What is the native backup solution available for
Exchange 2007 if we do not have it on Windows Server 2003?

A: Windows 2008 have Backup utility. But, as discussed and understood by you,
Windows Server Backup in Windows Server 2008 no longer supports
Exchange-aware backups or restores. Unlike earlier versions of Windows
Backup, you cannot make or restore streaming backups of Exchange by using
Windows Server Backup.

To back up and restore Exchange 2007 SP1 on Windows Server 2008, you must
use an Exchange-aware application that supports the Volume Shadow Copy
Service (VSS)
writer for Exchange 2007, such as Microsoft System Center Data Protection
a third-party Exchange-aware VSS-based application, or a third-party
application that uses the streaming backup APIs locally on the Exchange
server to
make a backup locally on the Exchange server. An application that uses a
agent that runs locally on the Exchange server and streams the backup
remotely to a
backup application is considered a local backup.

The Microsoft solution for this client scenario comprising 1 Windows 2008
with Exchange 2007 would be Data Protection Manager 2007. I have attached a
datasheet on how DPM works to protect Exchange data. However note that DPM
designed to run on a dedicated, single-purpose server that cannot be either
domain controller or an application server.
