    Default Exchange Backup - Exchange 2003, SP2

    I need to backup Exchange 2003, SP2. I purchased the Tivoli for Mail, and another client license.

    I have limited experience with TSM (mostly just in a support mode), and now I have to create a new domain policy, schedue, class, etc for a 30 day backup.

    Is there anything I should watch out for? Any advice?

    What should I set these settings to for a 30 day retention policy: Versions Data Exist, Deleted, Retain, and Retain Only? I know what to set them to for a file server, but I am unsure about exchange.

    Default

    That's a long time to back up a large exchange environment. Our Versions Data Exist is set to 2, and versions deleted to 1. Other than that I think our mgmt class is default.

    Default Thank you

    If I do a windows backup of our store, its about 200GB.

    If I have to follow a 30 day retention policy dont I have to set it to 30? That covers a change in the file every day, otherwise, wont I loose versiosn beyond 2?

    Default

    i set mine to
    version exists=30
    versions delete=30
    retain extra=30
    retonly only=60


    Set up two schedules just for ex
    sunday thru friday I do an incremental
    saturday i do a full

    I just started this this week.
    I first did full backups but that will eat up all my space.

    I'm still not familiar with the TDP.

    my incremtals are about 5-6 gigs instead of 200gigs
    I will test a restore next week.
