LCR AND EXCHANGE BACKUP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi folks, can anyone help , I am about to impliment this on a production server? Note I

    will use the echange aware backup in the future, but for right now , can I try these out?

    1)if i use external usb as lcr location, will it break anything
    how does this impact my server negatively?

    2)if i have my lcr data on a usb, something goes wrong
    on my live database, can i create a folder in the

    c:\program files\microsoft\exchange server\mailbox\1st storage grp
    directory, copy the lcr data into it, then mount to make it live?
    3)can I dismount , copy .edb file , paste into an external drive
    directory, and mount on the same server(exchange) in the future
    for recovery purpose

  • Hi
       Question 1: It will work. But it is not best choice. Microsoft recommends that your secondary disk have a similar capacity and equal performance to the active copy, to ensure that the secondary disk functions similarly to the disk housing the active database.  As my experience, local disk I/O performance is better than external USB I/O performance. So copy process will last a long time.
       Question 2: I never test it. You enable LCR.You should Select the path for the LCR system files and replication logs.
       
    Restore Database from LCR Copy command:
    Restore-StorageGroupCopy  -Identity:<Server>\<StorageGroupName>.
       You can’t modify path. So it won’t work.
       Question 3: That is ok.
