  • Hi,

     You should configure one Exchange DB for full backup and at least one other you should configure for "Copy Backup". The full backup will backup the databases and the log files and then truncate the log files.  The Copy backups will not truncate the log files.   Thanks,Marc

  • I'd say it depends on your servers activity.

    The full backup will truncate the logs so you need to know how it will affect performance your nodes if it's active or passive.
