Exchange Disaster RecoveryLocked
I spent a few days pouring over Microsoft documentation and watching a couple of presentations about disaster recovery and exchange. After deciding what would be best for our company I went to the boss for permission to buy the Exchange plug in for Backup Exec 8.0. I was turned down because it was to expensive(imagine that). If only they new.. anyway I have been afraid of what would happen when the exchange service wouldn’t start because we aren’t prepared, or so I thought. It happened yeseterday morning. I ran ESUtil to try and fix it, which didn’t work. My only option was to try and restor from my lastest Differential and normal backup. I was convinced after reading all this material that it wouldn’t work. When it did I was suprised. Whyshould I spend hundreds on a disaster recovery plan (like the way MS seems to think) when regular backups do the job? Am I missing something here?
