I will be making a new server acquisition soon for a migration from sbs 2003 r2 to sbs 2011 and want to nail down the changes in backup procedure first. We currently use NTBACKUP to do a full system backup on the weekend to one external HDD and differentials throughout the week on a separate external HDD. The full system backup is kept off-site during the week. Is this flexibility possible with sbs 2011 or do I need to start looking into a 3rd party solution? I've got a book that I've been reading through but it does not touch upon any sort of disk rotation schemes...only a single dedicated backup disk. Also, are there any other caveats I should be aware of regarding the size of the external HDDs I use for backup, etc? I thought I read somewhere that the size of the backup drive has to cover the entire capacity of the server. If that's the case, I'll be needing some large single drives.
No announcement yet.
