Exchange Server Logs are purged while taking snapshots of Guest OS using VSS Copy only function RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Im using VSS API for taking snapshot of Guest OSes. and issuing backup type as VSS COPY ONLY ((VSS_BT_COPY) for the guest os snapshot, but the Exchange server installed in the guest OS logs are purged while taking snapshot of that guest OS. Is  there any way to take copy only backup of guest OS Exchange server logs without purging the log files or whether we need to set any additional option to avoid truncating Exchange server logs ?


    NOTE: I tried adding VSSRequestor= 1 in the registry (both host and guest OS ) but no luck.

    Your help in this is much appriciated, its very urgent.

    Thnx in adavance.
