Managing Exchange SCR Servers
Updated: July 1, 2009
Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2007
Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager 2007 (DPM 2007) SP1 enhances DPM’s support for backup and recovery of Microsoft Exchange Server while supporting backup and recovery of the SCR server.
For more information, see Exchange Server 2007 - Standby Continuous Replication (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=134034).
In the current scenario, an onsite DPM server protects the Exchange server or cluster. The DPM server is protected by an offsite DPM server for disaster recovery. The Exchange server also replicates its logs and databases to the SCR server at a remote location. By using this deployment, you make sure that you have disaster recovery options both onsite and offsite. However, this also means that both Exchange and DPM are sending data across the network.
In the new scenario, instead of having both DPM and Exchange send data over the network, you use each DPM server to protect the local Exchange servers. The onsite DPM protects the onsite Exchange server (SCR source); the offsite DPM protects the SCR server (SCR target). This deployment lets you continue having a disaster recovery scenario both onsite and offsite without the cost of both applications transporting data over the network.
Depending on business requirements, you can choose to protect either both the SCR source and the SCR target server or just one of them.
|If SCR protection was enabled at the time of backup, make sure that it is also enabled at the time of recovery.|
Both SCR source and target servers are Exchange Server 2007 in standalone mode.
Both SCR source and target servers are Exchange Server 2007 in SCC mode.
Both CCR source and target servers are Exchange Server 2007 in CCR mode.
