    Iam using dpm 2012 R2 to backup my exchange 2013 dag databases.Currently iam backing up passive databases.currently iam migrating exchange 2010 mailboxes to exchange 2013 DBs.I have two questions.

    1.Why the Backup process is very slow it almost takes more than one day to complete.

    2.Backup jobs shows "in progress" for so long time while the data has been already transferred.

  • Hi,

    If you have chosen to verify the backups using eseutil - that is part of the backup process.  The backup will not show complete until all the exchange logs are checked.    To verify that is the issue, modify the protection group and uncheck the option to run eseutil and let a couple of backups run and see if they are faster.

    You can also use resource monitor to see what files eseutuil.exe is processing while backup is in progress.
