hi Chitij,

DAG option is always provided by default in Exchange 2010, however if you don't configure the DAG itself there is nothing else to be configured, and it will be considered stand-alone (at Exchange level I mean).

I'm surprised about the error message in nmm.raw, as the Application Information variables are correct, however you would need to check with your Exchange admin if at any point there was ever a DAG configured, as in that case there are some entries created in Active Directory and even DNS, so NMM woulc be able to detect those settings hence complaining about the FQDN for the DAG.

Could you please render the nmm.raw and attach here the full output?

Thank you.

Carlos.

As mentioned in application guide, I already set the PowerShell authetication:

- Ensure that in IIS you have set the correct permissions for PowerShell, as described in the documentation:


1. Go to IIS Manager > Your Host > Sites > Default Web Site > Powershell.
2. On the right-hand side pane, right-click Authentication and Enable Windows Authentication.
3. In Windows Authentication, right-click and select "Advanced properties", and ensure that the Kernel Mode Authentication is clear.

Just went throught this.

Add the mailbox servers you want to backup  to the User Groups > Administrators group

user=administrator,host=<mailbox fqdn>

user=system,host=<mailbox fqdn>

Hello Chitij,

Based on the error message:

nsrsnap_vss_save:NMM .. For Exchange 2010 backups, a NSR_EXCH2010_DAG fully qualified path must be specified in client Application Information.

I would say there is some parameters configured on the client entry that are still pointing to a DAG environment rather than stand-alone Exchange 2010.

Could you please let us know the Application Information variables configured for that client?

Thank you.

Carlos

Hi Carlos,

Application Information variable entries are: 

  

NSR_SNAP_TYPE=vss

NSR_ALT_PATH=F:\mountreplica

One more thing that needs to clarify is that DAG component is already installed on the Exchange server but not in used. Is there need to configure Exchange 2010 DAG backup or Exchange 2010 Stand-alone server backup?

Hi Chijit,

Can you please run the following command and paste here the output?:

nsrsnap_vss_save -v -?

Also, could you try to run the backup with saveset APPLICATIONS:\Microsoft Exchange 2010

Thank you.

Carlos.

A DAG was already configured. So I tried to configure Exchange DAG backup. The Backup is running successfully now.
