Running your own e-mail server and getting tired keeping up with spam and virus control ?

 

Consider moving e-mail accounts to your provider, yes this means you have to create many pop3 accounts and retrieve them for local delivery but it also means that your provider does all the spam and virus filtering for you for free. BatchedSMTP simply means DIYF(iltering).

13 October 2011 - 20:00 [WBAdmin and how to bypass the NAS limit]

 

You might be in the same boot as many others when it comes to using WBAdmin and getting it to write to a NASÖ some entries to read:

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/windowsbackup/thread/13bb79e9-c970-4805-88cb-2000b3348070/

http://www.bitwizards.com/Blogs/Bryan-Soltis/September-2008/Windows-Server-2008-Backup-to-a-network-share

 

Most suggestions donít work or work partially, our conclusion is quite simple, the target needs to be a NTFS volume, there are no 2 ways about that. Formatting a Linux NAS with NTFS is either unsupported or will make the NAS extremely slow.

 

Now for a solution that works and wonít cost an arm and a leg.

 

Some might have heard of it, some might not but to solve this you need a Staging Area, a what?? In environments where the amount of data to backup run into terabytes you run into the problem that not all data can be written to all targets at the same time. Tapes for instance are a lot slower than disks.

To overcome this issue a Staging Area is used to temporary store backup data from where slower devices can read from.

For WBAdmin the solution is the same, get an external disk that can hold 1 day of backup data and attach it to any windows machine, virtual or real, (not using wbadmin itself) as a Shared device and format this disk as NTFS.

The next step is to point WBAdmin to this disk and within the backup script Move the data from your SA to your NAS.

 

A small example:

wbadmin start backup -allcritical -backuptarget:"\\WindowsPC\Sharename\Full\20111013" -vssFull -noVerify -quiet

robocopy "\\WindowsPC\Sharename\Full\20111013" "\\NASname\Full\20111013" /s /e /move /R:3
