Hello All,

I have a problem regarding Exchange 2010 and DPM 2010. When i going to create protection group for exchange 2010 DAG, I have to select copy backups and Express full backups. Its mentioning i can only take one Express full backup in a Copy. I have diffrent senarios, please let me know which copys should i need to add for copy backups and which copys for Express full backups.

2 DAG servers ( Active and Passive) Server1 and Server 2

2 Databases ( MDB01, MDB02)

Both Databases mounted on Server 1.

HOw to select Express full and copy backup ?

Copy means that the transaction logs won't get truncated after a backup

Use the full backup instead so the logs will be truncated

If you have problems with this, create a new DB and create a test mailbox in there and do the backup of it to evaluate the result
