  • How to take backup of the exchange log files

    Hi,
    We have taken a manual backup of the log files in exchange 2003 and when we try to restore the log files it is stating an error.so can any one tell me a solution for this problem.

    Re: How to take backup of the exchange log files

    When you backup the Exchange Mailstore with an Exchange aware backup tool (NTBackup works) the logs are truncated as all data is written down to the database and no longer needed.

    If you are wanting to use them for restoring on a replacement server then you will need to force the replaying using eseutil.

    Hopefully this helps, if not what are you trying to achieve with them?

      I hope you understand that THAT is NOT the way to backup your Exchange stores...
