  • sbs 2003 exchange backup

    Trying to backup the First Storage Group with ntbackup and it goes so far and then the server freezes up, cannot even use the mouse let alone use rdp from home. I had to drive 50 miles to hard boot the server. Also used a program called backup assist which add a little xtra feature to the built in ntbackup, and the same thing happened. I would like to create a recovery storage group but it would be wothless without a backup of the mailbox store. I am running Symantec antivirus 10.1 with groupware and I don't know if this would affect anything or not. ANY IDEAS OUT THERE????

    Have u exclude the C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr from being scanned by Symantec ?

    It might freeze becuase when u try to read the Data from Exchsrvr folder, the symantec tyries to scan the files. Once I have encountered the problem and the cuase was the Symantec AV.

    Try to uninstall it or exclude the folder for the Exchange Database.

    Hope this will solve your problem.

      Files to exclude from scanning if the A/V is NOT Exchange aware.
