Configure SIS (optional)
Configuring Single Instance Store backups Exchange Server uses single-instance storage (SIS) to store mail messages. This capability in Exchange Server allows the database to keep one copy of a message attachment sent to multiple users on the same server. To perform SIS backups, this feature must be enabled on the client where Exchange Server is installed. Note: Only attachments larger than 100K are backed up as SIS objects. Attachments smaller than 100K are backed up with each individual message. To enable Single Instance Store backups
1.) Open the NetBackup Administration Console or the Remote Administration Console.
2.) In the left pane, expand Host Properties.
3.) Click Clients.
4.) In the right pane, right-click on the client you want to configure and choose Properties.
