I have three SG  with one mailbox each. There is one backup job. The job run without any error and using the management console in properties of mailbox I can see  that  the Exchange server correct recognizes the last full backup. The logs for the SG1 and SG2 are correctly moved after the bakcup but the logs of SG3 are not. The logs already occupy a lot of space - over 100GB How to fix it?

Thank you in advance

Hi LesLawC

Did you mean you checked the SG for the last full backup time or did you check a mailbox? I use Exchange 2010 but am assuming that Exchange 2007 is very similar. I suggest looking at the properties of all the SG and checking the lastfullbackup time on them to ensure that the backups have happened. If you want you can run the following via the exchange management shell to get the last full backup time

get-mailboxdatabase -status | ft servername,name,lastfullbackup

Check the last full backup time to ensure that it reflects the time of your last full backup. Also check your backupexec settings to ensure it has been setup to clear the exchange logs once it has backed up. Is there a backupexec client that you are using for the backup or are you using VSS?

If space is becoming a huge issue, for the time being you can enable circular logging on SG 3 to clear the space (it is not recommended but it can be used in a short interval to free up space).

Hope this helps.

there are no errors neither on the Exchange Server nor on Backup Excec' site.
What is unclear in the explanation? One backup job for Exchange server. Three SG with one mailbox database each. The logs for the first and second SG will be removed after the job run  and for the 3rd SG Group not. The same backup settings for all because one job for all

      I have solved the problem.
      I saw that the modify date of the copy database did not change for a long time. That also was size  difference between both databases. I disabled the lcr for the affected storage group and made full backup of the database After this the logs were deleted. I still do not reason why the copy logs were not written in the copy database.

      No suggested solutions was connected to my problem.
      Maybe I delivered to few details and at the beginning  I was searching in a wrong place
