  • I know that CommVault has recently released limited VSS support for Exchange Server 2010.  There is a later update coming from them which will add full 2010 support.  The new version will backup either active or passive databases but is required to be installed on all Mailbox server participating in a DAG.  The later update will add greater DAG backup flexibility.

    EMC Legato Networker will soon be supporting a scripted solution to backup Exchange 2010 DAG databases as a stop-gab measure before the full release later this year which will add native support for VSS backups of active or passive databases.

    Symantec BackupExec has already released a version compatible with Exchange 2010 DAG.

  • We've just been trying to get Commvault 8 working with 2010 yesterday.

    Not great really. As you say we can get the DAG databases backed up, but it is failing on Public folder database.

    We also tried to get the brick-level agent installed (which we are now told doesn't support PF's for 2010) but it simply hasn't worked.

    It doesn't help that the main agent is 64bit and the brick-level is 32bit only.

    And before you ask why bother with brick-level, not my decision.

    Documentation (which is pretty useless) even states that to get the brick-level working you have to install it on CAS (which is reasonable since that is the MAPI end-point) but also install Outlook 2007 on the same box which introduces loads of security implications. OR you can install it on what they call an off-host proxy but then you have to pay extra for the license for that.

    Oh, and it won't backup the passive databases, only the active.

    Not terribly happy at the moment.

  • Interesting thread, don't forget Microsoft Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2010. Our own experience at the moment is trying to backup DAGS over a backup network (which isn't uncommon in an enterprise) is not well documented and supporting software appears to need lots of tweaking. We have got Netbackup 7.0.1 to work but it requires a lots of host file entries to work on both Exchange DAG servers and Netbackup Master server.

    If anyone has any other experience I would appreciate them sharing their knowledge
