About Exchange Server 5.5

By ask_anurag ·

I have two question about exchange server 5.5:
1) How to take backup of Exchange Server 5.5 I heard that EXMerge but it takes backup of mailboxes not whole exchange server.
2) I have two exchange servers both 5.5 and there is trust relation betweeen two but users on one exchange server can't see GAL of other exchange server. What I have to change in my exchange so that they can see GAL.

1. YOu need a backup program such as Veritas BackupExec. Exmerge is NOT a backup program.

2. Are the two servers in the same Organisation or Site, if not then you need to connect the two.;en-us;198789

1) You should use NTBACKUP or a Third party program (Backup Exec). My advice is that you become familiar with Exchange Database files (.EDB) and Log files (.LOG). Then you can determine a backup schedule (Normal with Incremential or Differentials). Another note, I have never heard of EXMerge. Be very aware of what utilities you run on your Exchange server. Adverse effects can happen easily.
2) Use the Exchange Administrator program to view the directory replication schedule. Replication messages can be traced in the message-tracking log. View the Application event log to determine if there are errors in the directory replication.

Hope this helps.
