Forcing log truncation for an Exchange machine

In order to force log truncation, an Exchange database must be present on a protected volume. If Rapid Recovery does not detect the presence of a database, the log truncation check does not appear in the Core Console.

When you force log truncation for a protected Exchange Server, the size of the logs are reduced. Complete the steps in this procedure to force log truncation on demand.

1.
In the left navigation area of the Rapid Recovery Core Console, select the protected Exchange server for which you want to force log truncation
The Summary page for the protected machine appears.
2.
At the top of the page, click the Exchange drop-down menu and select Force Log Truncation.

About Exchange database mountability checks

When using Rapid Recovery to back up Microsoft Exchange Servers, mountability checks can be performed on all Exchange databases after every snapshot. This corruption detection feature alerts administrators of potential failures and ensures that all data on the Exchange servers will be recovered successfully in the event of a failure.

To enable or disable this feature, go to the Settings menu for a protected machine, and set the Enable automatic mountability check option to Yes or No, respectively. For more information about modifying settings for a protected machine, see Viewing and modifying protected machine settings.

Mountability checks are not part of nightly settings. However, if the automatic mountability check is enabled, and if the Truncate Exchange logs nightly job is enabled, then the mountability check is triggered after the completion of log truncation.

You can also perform a mountability check on demand, from the Recovery Points pane on a protected Exchange server machine. For more information, see Forcing a mountability check of an Exchange database.

NOTE: The mountability checks only apply to Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016. Additionally, the Rapid Recovery Agent service account must be assigned the Organizational Administrator role in Exchange.
