NTBackup Automated backup

NTBackup Automated backup


Does anyone have a .BAT file that backups the entire Exchange server when using in an AT command?



RE: NTBackup Automated backup

I've been using this file to do NT backups on my Exchange server in addition to my usual Arcserve backups. I called it Exbackup.cmd and used an AT command to run it. It backs up the Directory, the Information Store and then the server's C drive and E: drive. Just replace Server5 with your server name and use the drive letters appropriate to your server.

rem ***   NTBackup for Exchange Server Server5
rem ***   This command file should be run every Saturday by the Schedule service using an AT command
ntbackup backup DS \\SERVER5 IS \\SERVER5 /d "Server5 IS and DS" /b /t Normal /l c:\winnt\exbackup.log
ntbackup backup c: /a /D "Server5 C Drive" /t Normal /l c:\winnt\cbackup.log
ntbackup backup e: /a /D "Server5 E Drive" /t Normal /l c:\winnt\ebackup.log


RE: NTBackup Automated backup

I've been developing a program that could schedule backups with NTbackup.exe.  it gives you all the options NTBackup offers, plus a time to run.  It's more for a glorified batch program, but I find it works great.  I'm still working on the Gui, but if you are interested, send me an email to chris.duarte@tomtec.com and I'll send you a copy.  I've been using it on my server with no problems whatsoever, but the cosmetics need some work.
