Re: Disaster Recovery - Plan for backing up an exchange server
it really depends on what sort of protection you are looking for.
obviously a second site where everything is backed up looks to be ideal, continuously replicating data.
other than that you can use backup tool like netbackup/backupexec/arcserve which all have exchange message/brick level backups to backup mailboxes in case of disaster.
As said above what are you looking for in your DR?
is it uninterrupted service?
no loss of messages?
how bigger disasters are you planning for? server death or site obliteration?
