Hello all,

I'm using Netbackup 7.0.1 backing up Exchange 2010. I already have Exchange license to backup the Exchange database. Exchange backup is running fine.I also have a seperate MS-WINDOWS type backup to backup the whole server but the backup skipped the *.edb file and completed with status 0 with no exceptions. When I perform a restoration, the edb file is not there.

How to backup the Exchange edb file? Do I have to stop the Information Store service to back it up and can I backed it up once just to act as a container for my Exchange database?. If a disaster happen, in order for me to recover the exchange server, I have to restore everything back and then restore the Exchange Database but in this case, the edb file is not backed up, I can't up my Information Store service to do the Exchange restoration.

As far as I know, Backup Exec do skip the edb files if you have an Exchange Agent and have to edit the registry setting in order to back it up but how about Netbackup?
