I am struggling to do an offline backup of Exchange using a batch file
through WINAT on NT 4.0 (Svc Pack 6a).
Exchange optimizer has spread the files across both partitions and i
therefore need to backup the EXCHSRVR directory on both C and D - this
is how my command looks:
ntbackup backup c:\exchsrvr d:\exchsrvr /a /v /d "exchange backup" /b
/hc:on /t normal /l "c:\winnt.sbs\backup.log" /e
it appears to successfully backup both directories but if i load up
the tape it only displays the C:\exchsrvr !!!
i have tried dozens of permutations :-
setting hc to 'off'
enclosing the paths with quotes
separating the paths with commas and semi colons
using 2 commands with the 2nd command appending D:
no matter what i try it does not work and only displays the first set
(C:). I think it must BE on the tape as the log wouldn't report a
successful verification. It just cant't seem to display the second
i can backup D: if i specify the path on its own...
i would be very grateful for any help on this as i have been working
on this problem for days, i have scoured these groups and haven't
found anyone who's had the same issue and i'm starting to lose the
will to live !
thanks in advance
