As with any other objects that are configurable in Yosemite Server Backup, you can configure the Microsoft Exchange Server for backups if you have the correct permissions.
- Open the Yosemite Server Backup administrator.
Open the Administration desk bar and select Catalog view.
Select Network, then locate and select the Microsoft Exchange Server on your system.
Right-click the server and select the Configuration command.
Update the following settings that control how Yosemite Server Backup works with Microsoft Exchange Server:
Setting Description Force Modes
As explained in the next section, the Backup mode setting of a backup job affects Microsoft Exchange Server databases differently than file types. The Force modes settings control how Yosemite Server Backup backs up the databases.
You can use this feature to ensure that databases always back up in full mode while other objects are only backed up when changed, guaranteeing the greatest security for the most crucial files (the Exchange Server databases), while keeping overall jobs a reasonable size (only backing up changed files).
Full When the Backup mode of a job is set to Full, Yosemite Server Backup checks this setting to see how the job should be run with Microsoft Exchange Server databases. Full is the only possible setting, so the databases are backed up in this mode. In this case, both the database and the transaction logs are backed up. Differential When the Backup mode of a job is set to Differential, Yosemite Server Backup checks this setting to see how the job should be run with Exchange databases. By default, Yosemite Server Backup runs the job as an incremental job and so only the transaction logs are backed up.
