Exchange Transaction Logs are not Flushing
December 24, 2008 10:36AM

I have Exchange 2003 running on Windows 2003 SBS, all updated and patched. Backup Exec for Windows Server 11d (Build 7170) runs our backups on this server.

I have setup weekly and nightly backups through two jobs:

. full backup run weekly, on Friday. The archive bit is reset and the committed exchange transaction logs are set to be flushed.

. differential backups run nightly, using the archive bit.

The problem:

[code]backups run fine, both full and differential, although exchange's transaction logs are not being flushed, and I'm watching them grow.[/code]

In going through Backup Exec's documentation, I have verified that all of the full/diff settings are correct. I have also taken the stores offline, run the eseutil to check them for consistency. The stores had been committed fully, so I moved the old transaction logs to another directory, remounted the stores and ran a new full backup. The logs still weren't flushed.

Any suggestions, recommendations?

I'm not sure where I am going wrong.
