Backup Exchange Rsync

by DataCube » Thu Mar 04, 2010 4:11 am

According to the Rsync whitepaper, its possible to backup exchange via rsync, however, I am unable to back it up because I dont see the option for Exchange in there, I can browse to the edb file, but it wont work that way.

Can I backup Exchange databases, SQL databases using Rsync?
Yes. We have tested the performance of Rsync on both SQL and Exchange database backups, and conclude that it is feasible to use Rsync to transport SQL and Exchange database backups offsite. Please see our slideshow presentation for more details. Note that in this circumstance Rsync must operate on a backup of the database rather than directly on the database files.

Where is this option?
