Iv’e been tasked with the backup of an Exchange 2003 Enterprise Server installed on Server 2003, using symantec backup exec 10.1, symantec is already installed and running a backup job.
Looking through the backup job properties I see multiple options/selectable items to back for Exchange 2003, they are:-
E:Program FilesExchsvrMDBDATA”STORAGE GROUP NAME”Priv1.edb etc…..
Microsoft Exchange Mailboxes (expanding this shows mailboxlist)
Microsoft Information Store (expanding this shows storage groups)
Do I need all the options above selected to successfully perform a restore?
Can I remove the E:Program FilesExchsvrMDBDATA”STORAGE GROUP NAME”Priv1.edb (this file is about 150gb) etc …… option as I have got the Microsoft Information Store option selected?
This Exchange server has got 3 storage groups each with 1 mailbox store, each mailbox store ranges in size 100 – 250gb, the First Storage Group also contains a small Public Folders DB
