Backing Up the Microsoft Exchange Site Replication Service (MSExchangeSRS)
Topic Last Modified: 2006-01-16
You will only have to back up the Microsoft Exchange Site Replication Service (MSExchangeSRS) if you have coexistence between Exchange 5.5 and Exchange 2000 or later servers. Use Backup to back up the MSExchangeSRS service on the server that is running it. By default, the server that is running the MSExchangeSRS service is the first Exchange 2000 or later server that was installed into an Exchange 5.5 site, although you can create new instances of the MSExchangeSRS service to distribute the replication load. Use Exchange System Manager to determine which Exchange server is running the MSExchangeSRS service in your site. For detailed instructions, see How to Determine Which Exchange Server Is Running the MSExchange SRS service.
|You can also back up the MSExchangeSRS service database (Srs.edb file) manually. The Srs.edb file is located in the SRSData folder under the folder where you installed the first Exchange 2000 Server or later server. For more information, see Microsoft Knowledge Base article 822453, "How to rebuild a Site Replication Service without a backup."|
