    Smile Windows SBS 2008 Backup not working with Exchange 2007

    We have VSS making shadow copies successfully twice daily. When SBS runs the SBS 2008 Backup for the drives, it does not backup the Exchange mailbox databases. As a workaround, I created a script that dismounts the Exchange mailbox databases, performs the backup, and then remounts the databases successfully at night. The mailboxes are in a dismounted state for approximately 45 minutes. I would feel much better with a full solution instead of this workaround. Any ideas? Thank you.

    What happens is you open a command line and type vssadmin /listwriters

    Post the result up

    Thank you for that information Glenda!

    1)
    Going with the 'vssadmin list writers' result from before I noticed an error:

    Writer name: 'Microsoft Exchange Writer'
    Writer Id: {76fe1ac4-15f7-4bcd-987e-8e1acb462fb7}
    Writer Instance Id: {3c819912-94b3-488f-9ccf-b55406aeb2bb}
    State: [5] Waiting for completion
    Last error: Retryable error

    2) Upon researching I was able to get it back to the below by resetting the 'Microsoft Exchange Information Store' service and the 'Microsoft Exchange Replication Service':


    Writer name: 'Microsoft Exchange Writer'
    Writer Id: {76fe1ac4-15f7-4bcd-987e-8e1acb462fb7}
    Writer Instance Id: {aa016cf9-a2fb-4432-ba84-94b333ee5901}
    State: [1] Stable
    Last error: No error


    3) Will enable the normal Windows SBS 2008 Backup for tonight and check.

    Consistency check for component '8653c9e4-dbea-4d51-9bb3-f346ef947b0b'\'Microsoft Exchange Server\Microsoft Information Store\ASB' failed. Application 'Exchange' will not be avaliable in the backup done at time '12/7/2013 11:00:07 PM'
    Log Name: Application
    Source: Backup

    Problem seems to be a consistency issue with the logs. I will take the mailbox database offline and run a consistency check with ESEUTIL tonight.
