Use NT backup to dump to file, then use ArgServ to dump that file to tape.
--Kevinm M, WLKMMAS, UCC+WCA, And Beyond Drive thru Admin, Would you like Fries with that? -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]] On Behalf Of Michel, David Sent: Monday, January 07, 2002 8:50 AM To: Exchange Discussions Subject: Win2k backup and Exchange I realize there are no stupid questions but only stupid people who ask questions so I'll throw my hat into the stupid ring as this is probably very simple... I finally got my boss to buy a DLT drive exclusively for each of my Exchange 2000 servers. From all I've read here and elsewhere I decided to use NTBackup rather than ARCServe on my servers. I cannot, however, find a way to setup the backups correctly. I aim to do a nightly full backup at 11pm with differentials every two hours from 6am until 8pm when the tape would be replaced for that night's backup. I see in the backup wizard how to set the daily backup as a "normal" and how to schedule a second "differential" backup for only the information store at my selected times. However, the option to "append" rather than overwrite the media is grayed out on the differential. If this differential is going to overwrite the full backup then a single tape source for backup isn't feasible. I'm sure it is but I'm just missing something so anything you can offer would be appreciated. David S.
