Scheduling Backup

By suman_vuyyuru ·
In Windows NT Server i am having 5 Disk partions. I want to have BackUp Scheduling for all the 5 Disk's at 23:00 Hrs. At the time of Backup, is it necessary to stop all the services. And in Windows NT Server i am having Ms Exchange Server as front end for user applications.

Scheduling Backup

There are two distinct steps.
A) create a batch files with commands to backup the folders you want.
e.g. Ntbackup backup d e f:
You can use mapped network drives to shares e.g net use M: \\server\share.
B) Master the AT.EXE program to schedule the batch file to run at 23:00 hrs.
Tip test AT with notepad to get it to work, the syntax of AT.EXE is very tricky. If you have NT Resource Kit use WINAT its much better.
Finally most people use a third party Backup utility because NT's native system is so primative e.g. ArcServ or Backup Exec

Besides Exchange Svr as front-end app on this server, are there other front-end apps running like SQL, IIS, etc.

For Exchange, yes you've got to stop all related services so your off-line BUP can access the files. Same thing if you have MS SQL databases.
