backup exec 2012 problems with exchange 2007 backups
In backup exec 2010 I had a backup job that backed up my 2007 mailserver, and my 2010 mailserver as the one job.
When I upgraded to 2012 backup exec, it split this job into 2 seperate jobs. And now the 2007 Mailserver backup job has been failling ever since.
Ive been on the phone with Backup Exec support all week, however they have been making small changes at a time and making me run the backup again. Problem is my mailstore is about 200GB and backups take about 14 hours to run which isnt much use when trying to troubleshoot.
His latest suggesiton is to reboot the mailserver and try again. Mailserver was rebooted on Saturday and backups have been failling before and after that reboot so I dont see how a reboot will help again. But I will humuour him and reboot it tonight but I dont hold out much hope.
So im resorting to this place
Error code is E00FEDF and message is The job failed with the following error: A failure occurred reading an object. The job log was not available to be included as part of this notification.
Any help much appreciated.

looking through the event logs on the exchange server I see this which I dont think Ive seen before:
Im wondering what they mean, and if @sukh might be able to suggest if this is correlating to my backup exec errors?
Event Type: Information
Event Source: Storage Group Consistency Check
Event Category: Database Header Validation
Event ID: 200
Time: 7:01:40 PM
Instance 1: Database headers have been successfully validated. All databases are in a dirty shutdown state. To bring these databases to a clean shutdown state, log generations 1408215 (0x00157cd7) to 1408233 (0x00157ce9) will be required.

This could be related.
Waht type of backups are you performing? Full? Inc?
I would check the DB headers to see if they are clean or not. Instead of re-typing agains I suggest you follow this can let me know how you get along.
Dirty shut down state / transaction logs not clearing

Hi sukh thanks for the quick reply. Does the Eseutil /MH <database_name> require that the database is dismounted?

OK I think I have fixed my problem without having to do any edb maintenance.
The exchange server also runs Shadow Protect Server edition. These 2 backup softwares have run fine together for many years.
Since the upgrade to bexec 2012 however, it seems its shadow protect causing the bexec errors.
Disable shadow protect and bexec compltetes its backups fine.
