Unfortunately the resolution provided in the article does not apply, because i already have all my Exchange data on snapable shared volumes.
Here is my infrastructure:
FC SAN based on NetApp 2040 matrix (Data Ontap 7.3.2) and Brocade Switches.
Exchange 2007 SP2 in CCR cluster based on Windows 2008 SP2 x64 Enterprise Editions
Backup Exec 2010 with ADBO and Exchange Agent based on Windows 2008 SP2 x64 Enterprise Edition
Exchange data resides on an array, logs are on Lun1 on Volume1 and database files are on Lun1 Volume2.
Volume1 and Volume 2 are on the same matrix, but they use two different RAID groups (in NetApp it's called aggregates)
I do have hardware VSS providers installed on Exchange cluster servers and on Backup Exec Server.
Account used for backup have all the necessary permissions on Exchange, AD and on the matrix.
Backup is performed directly to a Quantum Scalar i500 library.
I do have everything configured as described in Administrators Guide book.
Everytime i launch a backup job i can see that snapshots of these volumes are created and then mounted to the Media Server.
But in the end i get an error mentioned in an above document and the snapshots are not deleted. i have to delete them manually. backup fails.
Did anyone managed to configure offhost backups for Exchange 2007 ?
Can anyone tell me how can i resolve my problem ?
I managed to go forward with the problem.
My backup job runs, snapshot is created on exchange volumes, transported and mounted on Media Server.
Unfortunatelly when first bytes are beeing written to the tape, beengine.exe crashesh.
