Snapshot without Snap Manager for Exchange

February 3rd, 2009

Unfortunately there are rare cases where a customer either does not want Snap Manager for Exchange, or cannot afford it. I’m not going to try and attempt to write a scripted API for the Exchange VSS writer, but we can do warm backups of Exchange.

The following few scripts can help with this, a couple of VBscripts which will dismount and mount the Exchange stores allowing you to take a NetApp based snapshot with a batch script, and so getting a consistent backup point. I would recommend running this only once a day, and only on a system that can suffer disruption!
