Backup Exchange 2k7 issue - Database and logs in four disks (2 logs and 2 data)

Hello,

We have a CCR cluster with 3 disks in every node, one for SO, one for logs and other for DataBase. The reason that I'm writing this post is for ask you if its possible to create a two new disks (another one for logs and other for data). Configuration right now is:

  -C: --> SO

  -E: --> DATA1

  -F: --> LOGS1

  -H: --> DATA2

  -G: --> LOGS2

We are using Networker Module for Microsoft Exchange 2.2.1.130 and backups run correctly with the old Databases (located in E and F), but when we create a new Database in H and G, the backup returns this log error:

* dsglespbr-s3012.desigual.com dsglespbr-s3012.desigual.com:APPLICATIONS:\Microsoft Exchange 2007\Prueba: No full backups of this save set were found in the media database; performing a full backup

Re: Backup Exchange 2k7 issue - Database and logs in four disks (2 logs and 2 data)

Hello Ivan,

I see that you were trying to backup DB called "Prueba". Can you try to run a full backup for the generic saveset, to include all DB's:

APPLICATIONS:\Microsoft Exchange 2007

When adding new DB's to a previous existent environment you should run a full backup for all DB's.

In the other hand, can you please check the output of the following command?:

nsrsnap_vss_save -c Active_node -A NSR_VIRT_SERV=virtual_cluster_name -?

Thank you.

Carlos

Re: Backup Exchange 2k7 issue - Database and logs in four disks (2 logs and 2 data)

Hello Carlos,

We'll try a full backup next saturday, anyway, we tried to create a new IS with Logs and Data in the old storage (E and F) and backups run successfully, but when we tried to do the same with the new disks, logs show the error I attached.

This is the command nsrsnap output:

C:\Windows\system32>nsrsnap_vss_save -c dsglespbr-s3013.desigual.com -A NSR_VIRT

Hi Ivan,

Thank you.

Re: Backup Exchange 2k7 issue - Database and logs in four disks (2 logs and 2 data)

Hola Ivan,

Could you please render the nmm.raw from the Exchange node you were backing up and paste it in here?

I would need to see the very first line, which includes the command options and also the entire output.

I just saw the name of the client in one line starting with "d", and in the second line same name starting with "D", maybe it's just the rendering process, but I would like to have the full output.

Thank you.

Carlos.

Hi Ivan,

Did you manage to get the backup working? If it's still failing could you please render the nmm.raw and paste in here the output of the last backup attempt?

Thank you.

Carlos.
