Backup Exec: Backing up Exhange Store vs Mailboxes and Folders

In Backup Exec, you can choose to back up Microsoft Exchange Mailboxes,
Microsoft Exchange Public Folders and Microsoft Information Store.  Is
it necessary to backup the Information Store if you are backing up the
Mailboxes and Public Folders, or is that redundant?

Thanks,
Cliff

Backing up "Mailboxes and Public Folders" is redundant. See excellent

Thank you for the reply.  I'm a little confused. I'm thinking I should
back up the mailboxes and folders and that should suffice and not have
to back up the Exchange store which, if my understanding is correct,
contains the mailboxes and folders. Is that correct?

Just the opposite. :)

In a DR situation, you need that online backup of the store. Mailbox
level backups are not sufficient to restore a server to its previous
state, nor do they clear the committed transaction logs. 

If you are using Exchange 2003, you can use the recovery storage group
to retrieve individual mailbox contents, as well as using deleted item
retention to ensure you never have to go to a mailbox level backup.

While not impossible, it is quite difficult (and not exactly supported) to 
restore a failed exchange server if all you have is mailbox level backups. 
Mailbox backups also tend take much longer per megabyte than information 
store backups.  If you can only do one, I would choose information store 
backups.

You may want to test various scenarios
1.  Complete server failure, borrow a produciton backup tape and perform a 
restore to a blank server
2.  Recover mail item, use your production backup to recover a single mail 
item

this testing is a good idea to make sure everything works, it also gives you 
a good chance to write a procedure for doing both, you don't want to end up 
restoring a production server for the first time after it has failed for 
real.

"Information Store" object is database as whole. Backing it up is very 
fast, verifies your database and allows you to restore all of your data 
up to point of failure. Whatever you do, you should backup "Information 
Store".
"Mailboxes and Public Folders" is all the items in mailboxes and PFs. 
Backing up this is very slow, requires times more backup media, 
problem-prone and would not allow you to recover up to point of failure.

Please read all the references.
Also please make sure you test your recovery plan by actually performing 
test restore (either to lab server, that is disconnected from production 
network, or at the very least to recovery storage group).

Thanks everyone for the excellent information.  One last (I think)
question:  As I recall, in setting up the backup for the Exchange Store
you can only select the whole store and not select or deselect any of
the individual mailboxes or folders in the store.  If I back up just
the store, if I need to restore will I be able to select individual
mailboxes and folders to restore or will I have to restore the entire
store.  Thanks again.

No, you will have to restore the entire Storage Group to the Recovery
Storage Group.  From there you can connect to the RSG with Exmerge and
move whatever messages to the main Storage Group/Mailbox Store.

Recovering Public Folders is a whole different issue as Public Folders
cannot be restored to a RSG.  If you need to restore you can do
something like this:

1.  Take PFs offline
2.  Move/rename pub1.edb
3.  Take PFs online, creating a dialtone database
4.  Restore
5.  Connect with Outlook and copy out restored items to a PST
6.  Take PFs offline
7.  Bring back initial pub1.edb

Note, you will need to ensure no one else is making changes to the PFs
while you are doing this to ensure that you do not lose data.

Good luck and please read the Exchange 2003 Disaster Recovery
Operations Guide if you are responsible for the server.

single(?) mailbox problem
Hello, One of our mailboxes - delation (or move) of the mails takes incredible long time (>10 sec for each mail). It was tested on different PCs and different client. Performance monitor shows "spikes" to 90% for processor time for store. Where could be a problem? Thanks for any advise, Jacek You could probably fix this with isinteg. However, since it seems to only be affecting one mailbox the quickest fix would be to just export the contents of the mailbox, delete it, recreate it, and import (or if you have another server you could move the mailbox off then back). -- Ma...

Mailbox Restoration, Please Help
Hi all, I have question on Exchange restoration. I have migrated the Exchange Server from 2000 to 2003 and now I wanted to restore one mailbox from the old version backup. Any ideas how to do this on the separate envronment? Will it work if I install a separate DC? TIA, Sugih If the old version backup was at least Exchange 2000 SP3, you should be able to mount the database in the recovery storage group on the current Exchange 2003 server and recover the mailbox to a PST file. -- Neil Hobson Exchange MVP For Exchange news, links, and tips, check: http://www.msexchangeblog.com "S...

Corrupted messages within Exchange mailbox
Hi there, We are running Exchange 2000. We have a users' mailbox that is showing up with 2 emails in the inbox that seem to be corrupted.

I would like to perform some kind of clean up on the mailbox, but I'm not sure how to go about that as I'm reasonably new to Exchange. Has anyone got some ideas? Thanks a million!

Our information store has reached the 16GB limit. Users have cleared out there mailboxes. Now total 4GB. The information store still says it is full at 16GB, we have run the defrag utility.

How to restore a VSS backup of E12
Hi All, I could use VSS to backup a storage group in E12 server through Exchange Replication Writer. But I do not know how to restore the backup data. According to the Exchange Writer SDK, the backup created by Exchange Replication Writer can only be restored by Exchange VSS (Store) Writer. The problem is that the writer metadata saved contains only the information of Exchange Replication Writer, how can I initialize an Exchange VSS(Store) Writer instance for restore by using the metadata?

Pivot Tables in Excel 2007 vs 2003
I have just begun using Excel 2007 --- Am wondering how to do the following things (that i used to be able to do in Excel 2003), in case anyone has some guidance. 1.

Spelling & Gramer on shared folder
I use a shared folder for documents with my secretary but when I access a document created by her and try to alter it the automatic spelling and gramar checking does not kick in and if I use it in the tool bar it says it is completed when there are obvious errors. Is there a way to use spelling and gramar check on such documents on another computer on the network? I'm not real sure how shared folders (do you mean on a network or among user accounts?) work but I doubt this has anything to do with them.
