How to Manually Move Exchange Logs to Clear Enough Storage Space to Mount EDBs and Force a Successful Log Truncation Snapshot
If AppAssure is enabled to perform automatic log truncation with the nightly jobs and it fails to do so, your Exchange server’s log directory might begin to fill up. When this storage location becomes full Exchange is no longer able to process new mail flow and the Exchange application will be brought down. This will more than likely have huge impacts with routine business operations. Due diligence needs to be practiced in order to avoid the above scenario, such as setting up email alerts that the Exchange Log Truncation snapshot failed or monitoring your deployed systems.
If the above situation has happened in which the transaction log storage volume is full, then the Exchange databases are more than likely not mounting. If the EDBs are not mounted, then AppAssure cannot successfully do a log truncation snapshot. The AppAssure Core will state that the log truncation snapshot transfer job was successful, but the Application Event logs on the protected Exchange server will detail otherwise.
