  3. If you already use Skype to stay in touch with friends and family in your life away from work, you'll appreciate the power and simplicity of Skype for Business where it's easy to find and connect with co-workers. And you can use the devices you already have to reach businesses through an enterprise-grade, secure, IT-managed platform. If you're coming to Skype for Business from Lync, you'll recognize all of the features you already use but in a fresh new interface with simplified controls and some great new additions: New look and feel Call from Skype for Business using your desk phone for audio Integration with the Skype directory Call Monitor Rate My Call Quick access to call controls Emoticons New look and feel If you’re a regular user of the commercial version of Skype, then Skype for Business will seem very familiar: the Contacts list, presence indicators, buttons and icons, and even the app sounds should make you feel right at home. Learn more. Of course, all the essential Lync features are still there—like the Quick Actions buttons, which let you IM or call a contact (and more) with just one click or tap. In the Skype Meeting window, the simplified arrangement of controls and menus makes it easy to find the command you need. In the conversation window, chat text is formatted so you can easily see who’s talking, and tabbed conversations allow you to keep track of several discussions at once. If you've ever had someone send you a file during an IM conversation, then file transfer preview is another feature of the new Skype for Business look and feel you'll appreciate. When someone sends you a file, select Download in the IM window to update the file's icon, or right-click or tap and hold to forward, preview, or delete it. Call from Skype for Business using your desk phone for audio Important This feature is available only if your organization has Skype for Business Server 2015. If you have a PBX (Private Branch Exchange) desk phone and your IT department has configured it to work with Skype for Business you can search for people in your organization and place calls to them from within the Skype for Business user interface, while audio for the call flows through your standard desk (PBX) phone. You can also place calls from the Skype for Business client using any phone near you (like your mobile, home, or hotel phone). The person you’re calling sees your phone number as though you were calling from your company's main phone number. When you make a Skype for Business call with audio routed through your desk phone, you get great audio, plus: IM—so you can do a quick copy/paste of a URL you want to share, for example Desktop and app sharing—so you can easily show and tell, work through problems, or explain stuff with visuals Attachments—send files to the other person without leaving Skype for Business Server admins enable and configure this feature for the enterprise. End users have limited configuration capabilities, which include turning the feature on or off for their individual account (once it's enabled at the enterprise level) and setting the phone number that Skype for Business should call. If the number has been set and locked by the administrator, then outgoing call options will be unavailable. For more information, see Make a Skype for Business call but use your PBX desk phone for audio Integration with the Skype directory Important This feature requires: Skype for Business Server 2015 or Skype for Business for Office 365 The latest version of Skype Skype for Business users can connect over the Internet with hundreds of millions of Skype users right from the Skype for Business user interface. The first step is to search for your contact. In the search box on the Contacts view of the Skype for Business main window, type a name, IM address, or desk phone number (if they are in your organization). As you type, search results will start appearing below the search box and the tabs will change from Groups, Status, Relationships, and New: to My Contacts and Skype Directory: If the person you are searching for is in your organization, keep the My Contacts tab selected (that's the default). When My Contacts is selected, Skype for Business searches in your organization's address book. If the person you are searching for is not in your organization but you know they have a Skype account, click the Skype Directory tab to search for them among the millions of Skype users out there. Knowing their Skype ID and location helps narrow the search quickly. You can also search using their email address or Microsoft account (e.g., JohnDoe@outlook.com). Note Your administrator enables or disables the Skype Directory search feature in accordance with your organization's search policy. If you don't see a Skype Directory tab like the one shown in the screen shot above, then you won't be able to search for Skype users. When you search for contacts in the Skype directory, you can add them to your contact list, have an instant messaging conversation, see their presence information, and have an audio or video call with them. Note that the Skype directory only contains contact information for Skype users, not Skype for Business users. A Skype user who wants to add a Skype for Business user to their contact list must use the Skype for Business user's full email address, such as Joe@contoso.com. Call Monitor Call Monitor is a popular Skype feature that's now available in Skype for Business. With Call Monitor, you can move back and forth between a full Skype for Business window, for those times when you're actively participating in the call, and a compact version that lets you continue to monitor call progress—and mute or end the call—while focusing on other tasks. The compact Call Monitor window appears during an audio or video call whenever the main conversation window is minimized. To show the full conversation window again, simply double-click or double-tap the Call Monitor. Rate My Call The Rate My Call feature lets Skype for Business Server 2015 administrators collect call data, access standard reports, and export raw data for further analysis. This feature is available for on-premises deployments only. Users are prompted to take a survey after completing a call. Quick access to call controls Access to the dial pad and call controls is much improved. For public switched telephone network (PSTN) calls, the dial-pad and call controls remain visible throughout the call. For non-PSTN calls, the dial-pad and call controls are accessible with one click. Emoticons Skype for Business now includes the same set of emoticons found in the consumer version of Skype. You can turn off emoticons in Skype for Business by going to Options > IM. No server setting is available.

  5. Using Transport rules, you can look for specific conditions in messages that pass through your organization and take action on them. Transport rules let you apply messaging policies to email messages, secure messages, protect messaging systems, and prevent information leakage. Many organizations today are required by law, regulatory requirements, or company policies to apply messaging policies that limit the interaction between recipients and senders, both inside and outside the organization. In addition to limiting interactions among individuals, departmental groups inside the organization, and entities outside the organization, some organizations are also subject to the following messaging policy requirements: Preventing inappropriate content from entering or leaving the organization Filtering confidential organization information Tracking or archiving copying messages that are sent to or received from specific individuals Redirecting inbound and outbound messages for inspection before delivery Applying disclaimers to messages as they pass through the organization Overview of Transport rules Transport rules are similar to the Inbox rules that are available in many email clients. The main difference between Transport rules and rules you would set up in a client application such as Outlook is that Transport rules take action on messages while they’re in transit as opposed to after the message is delivered. Transport rules also contain a richer set of conditions, exceptions, and actions, which provides you with the flexibility to create a customized rule. You can create up to 100 Transport rules in order to implement your business-rule compliance. The following list summarizes the basic workflow for Transport rules: You create Transport rules to meet your business needs. As messages go through your organization, the Transport rules agent is invoked. The Transport rules agent is a special component that checks messages against the Transport rules you create. The Transport rules agent scans the message, and if the message fits the conditions you specify in a Transport rule, it takes the specified action on that message. Transport rule components Transport rules consist of the following components: Conditions   Use Transport rule conditions to specify the characteristics of messages to which you want to apply a Transport rule action. Conditions consist of one or more predicates that specify the parts of a message that should be examined. Some predicates examine message fields or headers, such as the To, From, or Cc fields. Other predicates examine message characteristics such as message subject, body, attachments, message size, and message classification. Most predicates require that you specify a comparison operator, such as equals, doesn’t equal, or contains, and a value to match. Exceptions Exceptions are based on the same predicates used to build Transport rule conditions. However, unlike conditions, exceptions identify messages to which Transport rule actions shouldn’t be applied. Exceptions override conditions and prevent actions from being applied to an email message, even if the message matches all configured conditions. Actions Actions are applied to messages that match the conditions and don’t match any exceptions defined in the Transport rule. Transport rules have many actions available, such as rejecting, deleting, or redirecting messages, adding additional recipients, adding prefixes in the message subject, or inserting disclaimers in the message body. For a complete list of Transport rule predicates, see Transport Rule Predicates. The list of predicates is also available in the Transport rule dialog in the EAC. If you use the Shell, you can retrieve the list of predicates by using the Get-TransportRulePredicate cmdlet. For a complete list of Transport rule actions available, see Transport Rule Actions. The list of actions is also available in the Transport rule dialog box in the EAC. If you use the Shell, you can retrieve the list of actions by using the Get-TransportRuleAction cmdlet. To create Transport Rules in Office 365, first must log into Office 365portal https://portal.microsoftonline.com/default.aspx and go to the following location: Go to Admin and choose Exchange 2. Navigate to Mail Flow (from the left site) and choose Rules This is where any and all transport rules can be created and applied Once you are in the rules area of the O365 portal, you perform the following: 1. Press the + sign and then select Create a new rule 2. Choose a name for this rule and choose the rule for your condition (depends what you want to achieve) 3. Choose the option that apply for your condition and after you finished click on Save 4. Now, this rule is ready to be applied to all emails coming through your Office 365 tenant. For comprehensive information on Transport Rules as a whole, refer to the following link: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd351127(v=exchg.150).aspx Outlook Rules A rule is an action that Microsoft Outlook runs automatically on incoming or outgoing messages, based on conditions that you have specified. Rules help reduce manually filing or taking the same action when a similar message arrives. Unlike Quick Steps, rules typically are always on and run automatically. For example, when a message is received from a specified person, it’s automatically moved to the folder that you designate. The Rules Wizard helps you design rules to manage messages. Rules fall into one of two categories — organization and notification. The Rules Wizard includes templates for the most frequently used rules, which include the following: Stay Organized    These rules help you file and follow up on messages. For example, you can create a rule for messages from a specific sender, such as Anne Weiler, with the word “sales” in the Subject line, to be flagged for follow-up, categorized as Sales, and moved to a folder named Anne’s Sales. Stay Up to Date    These rules notify you in some way when you receive a particular message. For example, you can create a rule that automatically sends a message to a mobile device when you receive a message from a family member. Start from a blank rule    These are rules that you create without the aid of a rule template and that you can completely customize. Create a rule Outlook includes rule templates for common scenarios. Use these rule templates, or create design your own custom rules. 1. Click the File tab, click Manage Rules & Alerts 2. In the Rules and Alerts dialog box, on the E-mail Rules tab, click New Rule 3. Follow the wizard and at the end click Finish Additional Information: Manage email messages by using rules http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/manage-email-messages-by-using-rules-HA102749402.aspx
  6. Exchange Server 2013 SP1 Prerequisites (Exchange2013SP1Prerequisites_v1.0) This script automate execute steps for installing the necessary Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012 operating system prerequisites for the Microsoft Exchange 2013 Mailbox, Client Access, Multirole and Edge Transport server roles. The prerequisites that are needed to install Exchange 2013 on a Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2012 computer depends on which Exchange roles you want to install. What do you need to know before you begin? o The Edge Transport server role is available starting with Exchange 2013 SP1. o Make sure that the functional level of your forest is at least Windows Server 2003, and that the schema master is running Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 2 or later. o The full installation option of Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012 must be used for all servers running Exchange 2013 server roles or management tools. o You must first join the computer to the appropriate internal Active Directory forest and domain. o You must check and be sure your server has access to the internet o Some prerequisites require you to reboot the server to complete installation. Let’s have a quick look how to execute the script Exchange2013SP1Prerequisites_v1.0 on Windows PowerShell and what this script do for us. 1. Login to Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012 with Enterprise Administrator credentials 2. Start Windows PowerShell “As Administrator” 3. Next step, copy the script Exchange2013SP1Prerequisites_v1.0 on (C:\) drive 4. Let’s start with running scripts from within Windows PowerShell itself. In case you get weird error messages when you try to run a script, the reason is only one, security settings built into Windows PowerShell include something called the “execution policy” the execution policy determines how (or if) PowerShell runs scripts. By default, PowerShell’s execution policy is set to Restricted that means that scripts – including those you write yourself – won’t run. Navigate back to Windows PowerShell and set the Execution policy to unrestricted in order to be able to run the script, in that case, use this command to set your execution policy to RemoteSigned or Unrestricted Note: The Set-ExecutionPolicy cmdlet enables you to determine which Windows PowerShell scripts (if any) will be allowed to run on your computer. Windows PowerShell has four different execution policies: o Restricted – No scripts can be run. Windows PowerShell can be used only in interactive mode. o AllSigned – Only scripts signed by a trusted publisher can be run. o RemoteSigned – Downloaded scripts must be signed by a trusted publisher before they can be run. o Unrestricted – No restrictions; all Windows PowerShell scripts can be run. 5. The most common (default) way to run a script is by calling it: PS C:\> & “C:\Admin\My first Script.ps1″ If the path does not contain any spaces, then you can omit the quotes and the ‘&’ operator PS C:\> C:\Admin\Myscript.ps1 If the script is in the current directory, you must indicate this using .\ (or ./ will also work) PS C:\> .\Myscript.ps1 In our case scenario we run the script in the current directory “C:\” so, we must indicate this using .\ and we click Enter 6. Our script now it starts running, select an option from the menu. In my case scenario, I will select option 3 (E2013 Multirole installation) and click Enter 7. As you can easy check bellow, my Multirole Prerequisites are in progress to be download and install 8. After the Prerequisites successfully installed, we have to choose the option 10 in order to restart our server 9. After restart your server, login as EA and proceed to install your Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 SP1 You can download the script here Enjoy…..

  14. The most of you start wander “Where is the EMC (Exchange Management Console) in Exchange Server 2013?” Well, some things remain the same as login in the new Exchange Server 2013, and other things change (this is the technology). Let’s see together which are the things are new in Exchange Server 2013, one of those is the EMC (Exchange Management Console). Where is the EMC (Exchange Management Console) and how where we can find it? Almost everything in new Exchange 2013 is web-based management console, not EMC (Exchange Management Console) but EAC (Exchange Administration Center), that allows for ease of use and is optimized for on-premises, online, or hybrid Exchange deployments. The EAC replaces the Exchange Management Console (EMC) and the Exchange Control Panel (ECP), which were the two interfaces that were used to manage Exchange Server 2010. One of the advantages of having the web-based EAC is that you can partition access from the Internet/Intranet from within the ECP IIS virtual directory to allow or disallow management features. This allows you to permit or deny access to users trying to access the EAC from the Internet outside of your organizational environment, while still allowing access to an end-user’s Outlook Web App Options. How can I login to EAC? If we navigate to IE (Internet Explorer) and type http://server FQDN/ecp (in my scenario is https://e2013.cloud.com/ecp and voila, you are now logged in the new EAC old EMC console.. Supported browsers For the best experience with the EAC, use one of the operating system and browser combinations labeled “Premium”. Premium: All functional features are well-supported and fully tested. Supported: Has same functional feature support as premium; however, supported browsers will be missing features that the browser and operating system combination doesn’t support. Unsupported: The browser and operating system isn’t supported or tested. Be in tune...
  15. As we mention in Part1, Exchange Server 2013 has 2 server roles, Mailbox Server role and Client Access Server role. We have the option to install either single server role or both the roles on the same computer. In any case of installation role, CAS Role or both servers roles (CAS and Mailbox), Exchange Management Tools will be installed together. After you extract the Exchange-x64.exe file, start the exchange 2013 installation by click on the setup file available on the installation file. Below window appears up, check the option “Connect to the Internet and check for Updates” and click next to continue. On the Introduction page, read the information and click next to continue. If you plan to use to Deployment assistant click on the necessary option. Accept on the License Agreement page and click Next to continue On the Error Reporting Window, Click Yes and Click Next to continue Next step will automatically check for the required software if is installed in the Server, if any issue appear, it will prompt you to fix it. If no error click Next to Continue On the Server Role Selection Windows, if it is standalone installation select both the Mailbox and Client Access Server role and click Next to continue Installation Space and Location windows will allow an option to change the installation path, make necessary change or leave the default path and click Next Type the Exchange Organization name and click Next Malware Protection Setting, this option is new in Exchange 2013 which will by default scan all the emails, if you are using other option disable the option and click Next to continue If this Exchange 2013 server is an internet facing client access server then check the option and enter the internet domain name. If not leave it as it is and click Next to continue. On the Customer Experience Improvement Program, read the information, choose the required option and click Next to continue. Readiness check windows will check of the all the options prior to install the Exchange Server 2013. If everything is normal, then the installation will start. Once the readiness check is completed Exchange Server 2013 installation will happen. Once it is completed, click finish is complete the installation. Enjoy..
  16. Process of Exchange Server 2013 Preview installation in Windows Server 2012. The new Exchange Server 2013, split in 2 roles Client Access Server and Mailbox Server (In addition, Exchange 2013 Preview works with the Exchange 2010 Edge server role.) The Mailbox server includes all the traditional server components found in Exchange 2010: the Client Access protocols, Hub Transport service, Mailbox databases, and Unified Messaging. The Mailbox server handles all activity for a given mailbox. The Client Access server provides authentication, redirection, and proxy services. The Client Access server itself doesn't do any data rendering. The Client Access server is a thin and stateless server. There is never anything queued or stored on the Client Access server. The Client Access server offers all the usual client access protocols: HTTP, POP and IMAP, and SMTP. Before we proceed, we need to check the prerequisites for Exchange Server 2013, let’s see what we need to check before we begin: Make sure that the functional level of your forest is at least Windows Server 2003, and that the schema master is running Windows Server 2003 with SP1 or later. The full installation option of Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 must be used for all servers running Exchange 2013 Preview server roles or management tools. You must first join the computer to the appropriate internal Active Directory forest and domain. Some prerequisites require you to reboot the server to complete installation. To prepare Active Directory for Exchange 2013 Preview, you must install the following software on the computer that will be used to prepare Active Directory: Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 Windows Management Framework 3.0 After you install the software, open Windows PowerShell and install the Remote Tools Administration Pack. On a Windows Server 2012 computer, run the following command: Add-WindowsFeature RSAT-ADDS OS prerequisites for both the CAS and Mailbox roles: Do the following to install the required Windows roles and features: Open Windows PowerShell. Run the following command to install the required Windows components. Install-WindowsFeature AS-HTTP-Activation, Desktop-Experience,NET-Framework-45-Features, RPC-over-HTTP-proxy,RSAT-Clustering,Web-Mgmt-Console, WAS-Process-Model, Web-Asp-Net45, Web-Basic-Auth,Web-Client-Auth,Web-Digest-Auth, Web-Dir-Browsing, Web-Dyn-Compression,Web-Http-Errors, Web-Http-Logging, Web-Http-Redirect, Web-Http-Tracing,Web-ISAPI-Ext, Web-ISAPI-Filter, Web-Lgcy-Mgmt-Console, Web-Metabase,Web-Mgmt-Console,Web-Mgmt-Service, Web-Net-Ext45, Web-Request-Monitor,Web-Server, Web-Stat-Compression, Web-Static-Content, Web-Windows-Auth,Web-WMI, Windows-Identity-Foundation After you've installed the operating system roles and features, install the following software in the order shown: Microsoft Unified Communications Managed API 4.0, Core Runtime 64-bit Microsoft Office 2010 Filter Pack 64 bit Microsoft Office 2010 Filter Pack SP1 64 bit For Exchange 2013 Preview, you must also uninstall Microsoft Visual C++ 11 Beta Redistributable (x64).

  18. Last month we released the Outlook Configuration Analyzer Tool (OCAT) on the Microsoft Download Center site. OCAT was developed by two Microsoft support engineers with over 30 years of combined experience in Outlook, Exchange and Office support. Based on their support experience, they compiled a set of detection rules that look for Outlook configurations that have historically been potential sources of problems in Outlook. The tool looks and feels like Microsoft Exchange Best Practices Analyzer (ExBPA) - the same infrastructure used by ExBPA was chosen for the development and final implementation of OCAT. Figure 1: Microsoft Outlook Configuration Analyzer Tool (OCAT) You can use OCAT to check Outlook configuration on your users' computers and look for known issues (for example, a PST file located on a network share). We recommend running it if you suspect a user's Outlook profile or configuration to be a part of the problem. You can also run the tool proactively to detect Outlook configuration issues. The tool allows you to: Run a scan on your computer Open a previously run scan on your computer Import a scan from another computer Use several reporting formats to view the scan results Start the Exchange Remote Connectivity Analyzer tool Send feedback to the OCAT team We're working on an updated version of OCAT that includes new functionality such as automatic downloading of new detection rules, scanning calendar items (using code from the new CalCheck tool) and offline scanning for Outlook 2003 clients. Since OCAT utilizes MrMapi to collect a few configuration settings, we are also working with its developer (another Microsoft support engineer) to improve data collection capabilities in OCAT. You can follow the OCAT team on Twitter to receive news of OCAT updates. System requirements Before you install OCAT, make sure that your computer meets the following OCAT system requirements: Supported operating systems: Windows 7 Windows Vista Service Pack 2 Windows XP Service Pack 3 OCAT requires Microsoft Outlook. The following versions of Outlook are supported: Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 Microsoft Outlook 2010 (32-bit or 64-bit) Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 or higher .NET Programmability Support (as part of your Microsoft Office installation) Note Outlook 2003 is not a supported version of Outlook with the OCAT tool. If you try to perform a scan on a client that has Outlook 2003 installed, you receive the following error message: Error starting scan, please try again. If error persists, please send mail to ocatsupp @ microsoft DOT com. You can also download a complete OCAT user guide from the download page. We highly recommend that you read this document before installing and using OCAT. See OCAT Supplemental Information. OCAT Functionality overview Here's an overview of the functionality provided by OCAT. Generating an OCAT scan report To generate an OCAT report for your Outlook profile, simply click Start a scan in the left panel. Be aware that you must make sure that Outlook is running before you start an OCAT scan. Figure 2: Starting an OCAT scan If you can't keep Outlook running long enough to start an OCAT scan, you can still perform a basic scan. To do this, in the Task drop-down list, select Offline Scan and then click Start scanning. Figure 3:Starting an offline scan The report that an offline scan generates contains only information that's available on your computer, such as registry data, Application event log details, a list of installed updates and local file details. Although an offline scan doesn't contain as many profile details as an online scan, it may still provide enough information to help you resolve any problems that you are experiencing with Outlook. Viewing your scan report The report that OCAT generates can, in most cases, provide a lot of information about your Outlook profile and show you known problems in your profile with links to relevant Knowledge Base articles. List Reports The List Reports view is the default presentation of your scan data. In the List Reports view, there are up to three tabs that are available to view different snapshots of this data: 1) Informational Items 2) All Issues and 3) Critical Issues Tree Reports The Tree Reports view of your scan report provides tree-control functionality to view your scan results. In the tree report view, two tabs are available to view different snapshots of this data: 1) Detailed View and 2) Summary View How to view a report that was created on another computer You can view an OCAT scan report generated on another computer. Start OCAT on the user's machine. In the left panel, click Select a Configuration scan to view and then select the scan you want to view from the list of available scans. Click Export this scan. In the Export this scan dialog box, specify a file name and a folder location. Copy the XML file that you saved in step 5 to the computer from which you want to view the report. On the computer to which you copied the file in step 6, start OCAT. On the Welcome page, click Select a Configuration scan to view. On the Select a Configuration scan to view page, click Import scan. Browse to the folder that contains the XML file that you copied in step 6, and then click Open. The scan is opened automatically for viewing.

  21. Part 2 of this series (Part 1 is here) breaks down the events that take place during the backup of a mounted and active replicated database in an Exchange 2010 Database Availability Group called, simply enough, “DAG”. In this example the backup server is asked to create a full backup of database DB1 on server ADA-MBX1, using non-persistent COW snapshots: (please click thumbnails for full size version of graphics in this post) Event 9606 indicates that the VSS requestor has engaged the Exchange writer, and reports the instance GUID for the backup job that is starting. In this case the instance is 830705de-32d9-4059-94ea-b9e9aad38615. This instance GUID persists throughout each job, and changes with each subsequent one. You can therefore use it to track the sequence of events for each individual job. At this time that the Exchange Writer provides metadata about the databases and logs present to the backup application. Events 2005 and 9811 indicate an instance number assignment for ESE. So along with the writer instance GUID event 9606 we can also track a job’s progress using these ESE instance numbers which increment by one with each job. At this stage the database is marked with “backup in progress” in the Information Store Service's memory space. Just after the backup application has determined which disks need snapshots created, based on the data locations provided by the Exchange Writer metadata, it goes ahead and requests those snapshots. As the snapshot requests arrive event 9608 gets generated, indicating the Exchange writer’s acknowledgment of what’s about to happen. It then must halt disk writes to the database(s) and logs, also known as a “freeze” for the duration of the snapshot generation process. When event 2001 is logged the current transaction log is closed, and the freeze begins. Writes from STORE.exe to the disks are held in memory. Once these events appear we know the snapshot(s) have been created, and writes are allowed to database data blocks again. Once the snapshots are created the backup application can copy blocks of data from the VSS subsystem, getting blocks of data from shadow storage if they’ve been preserved due to a change, or from the actual disk volume if they haven’t. The Exchange Writer waits for the signal that the transfer of data is complete. This flow of data is represented by the purple arrows, which in this case indicates data getting copied out of the snapshots in storage, through I/O of the Exchange server, and on to the backup server. Once the backup application finishes copying data it will signal VSS that it’s done. VSS in turn signals the Exchange writer, which then initiates post-backup steps, signified by the above events. Event 225 appears to state that log truncation won’t occur, but that event is misleading. For a standalone database, upon backup completion, ESE would go ahead and clear logs accordingly. However, when a DAG replicated database is involved a check of other database copies must be performed in coordination with the Exchange Replication Service to ensure log truncation can continue. Once that check is complete the logs eligible for truncation are deleted. The database header is marked with information about the backup and the backup in progress bit is switched off in memory. In this case the snapshots used for the job are destroyed as part of the completion. In other types of backups, such as incremental, the persistence of the snapshot varies, but in this case they are removed. In the next post in this series we'll look next at breaking down the backup of a passive DAG replicated database copy. Source: MSExchange Team

  23. If you find the inner workings of Exchange data backups using Volume Shadown Copy (VSS) a bit mystifying take comfort in not being alone. Administrators may ask, “What’s all the “freezing” and “thawing” I’m seeing in my event logs? What is the Exchange VSS Writer really, and what is it doing to my databases? How does it create a snapshot of a 135GB database in less than 60 seconds?” If you ever asked these questions but only felt more confused with the answers, here’s a guide to clear some of that up. To understand how a VSS backup of Exchange works it’s critical to understand the basics of VSS itself. There is some excellent documentation on TechNet and MSDN on this, as well as the Windows Server Core Team blog, “Ask the Core Team.” My esteemed colleague Randy Monteleone sums up the basics of VSS very nicely early in his post, while also providing links (repeated here) to some good TechNet primers on VSS: How To: VSS Tracing – Randy Monteleone http://blogs.technet.com/b/askcore/archive/2012/04/29/how-to-vss-tracing.aspx How Volume Shadow Copy Service Works http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc785914(WS.10).aspx Volume Shadow Copy Service http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee923636.aspx If you’re already familiar with at least the basics of VSS, then look forward to Part 2 in this series, where we will break down the events that occur in a VSS Exchange backup, and how Exchange logs them in the application event log. If you need a quick primer or refresher on VSS basics and the Exchange Writer I’ve condensed them into some visual points below to complement the references above. Snapshots Bear in mind that VSS solutions for Exchange, and for all applications, vary greatly between different hardware and software configurations. There are clone and COW snapshots, hardware and software solutions, just a very wide variety of technologies based on the core VSS subsystem. For the purposes of understanding Exchange backups we’re only going to illustrate one specific type of solution out of the multitude. Detailed below is what’s called “copy-on-write”, or “COW” snapshots. In a COW snapshot-based VSS backup of Exchange we have the creation of snapshots of the disks where Exchange data is hosted. No matter what is getting backed up, even if it’s a single database file and a few logs, VSS creates a snapshot of the entire disk where any data is stored. If the data resides across multiple disks, such as when an Exchange database is on one disk, and the logs are on another, VSS will create snapshots of any and all of those disks. So what is a “snapshot”? A volume snapshot is an area of space inside what’s called “shadow storage”, which is itself a typically small area of space on the disk located in its System Volume Information folder. After a disk snapshot is created a change to any data block from that time forward cannot get written until a copy of that block’s data before the change (as it was when the snapshot was created) gets written to the differencing area in shadow storage. In this way the data on the disk at the time the snapshot was created is preserved, block by block, in the shadow storage area. The snapshot data is then available either from the original disk, if the data blocks requested haven’t changed, or from the differencing area if they have. The fundamentals of this are illustrated below: Disk E: has a snapshot created at 1PM: A minute later one of the blocks gets written to, but not before the data as it was at 1PM gets preserved in the differencing area: As the actual disk changes the data as it was at 1PM gets written into shadow storage, preserving a record of the disk as it was in that moment: The following step: In the figure above a backup server requests data from the snapshot of blocks 2 and 53. Block 53 from 1PM is preserved in the snapshot, so it’s copied directly from shadow storage. Block 2 is unchanged since 1PM, so it is copied via the VSS driver VOLSNAP.SYS, which operates much like a filter driver underneath the NTFS.SYS file system driver. By working in the IRP stack (the part of kernel memory that manages disk I/O) underneath the file system it can read blocks of data without NTFS objecting that a file is in use. VOLSNAP.SYS is also responsible for ensuring blocks are copied over to shadow storage if a write is requested to them, hence the name “Copy On Write”. Here is more about VOLSNAP.SYS from Tim McMichael: Exchange / VSS / and differential block size… http://blogs.technet.com/b/timmcmic/archive/2011/07/12/exchange-vss-and-differential-block-size.aspx Now that we’ve got the basics of a COW snapshot down let’s look at how it works with Exchange, along with some other major concepts: Microsoft Exchange Writer So we know that any disk that stores Exchange data gets a snapshot created of it by VSS. How exactly, though, does a backup application find out which disks those are? Oftentimes an administrator selects databases for backup without specifying anything about what disks their data files are stored in. So something is required to provide the information about where the data files are, and therefore what disks VSS needs to create snapshots of. This information also tells a backup application, also known as a VSS requestor, what specific data files should be copied out of the snapshots for preservation on backup media, as we don’t want to copy out anything from the disk we don't need. The mechanism at work here is the Microsoft Exchange VSS Writer. Like any application’s VSS writer (there are many, just run VSSADMIN LIST WRITERS to see them) its first job is to tell the backup application about the data needed for backup, especially the EDB file, logs, and checkpoint file for each database requested. The information about these specific Exchange data files is known as writer metadata. (click thumbnail for full size version) In the figure above we see the initial steps of an Exchange backup. The Exchange Writer tells the backup server (the requestor) that there is a database located in a folder on volume E:, and that transaction logs for that database are in a folder on D:. Based on that information the backup application will request snapshots of the D: and E: volumes when the job progresses. The Exchange VSS Writer serves another critical role besides providing metadata to VSS requestors. It also has the job of stopping writes to the databases and logs on disk, or “freezing” them, for the time it takes to create the necessary snapshots. A COW snapshot typically takes a small amount of time to create, as all it consists of initially is the designation of an area in shadow storage for blocks to be preserved in when they change on the actual disk. Despite this relatively quick operation it can still take up to a minute, which is plenty of time for blocks of data to change on a disk between the start and the end of its snapshot creation process. If blocks of data change but don't have the originals preserved from the exact time the snapshot creation begins those blocks may become inconsistent with other snapshot data, especially between logs, database, and checkpoint files. Hence, the Exchange Writer prevents the Information Store Service, or the MS Exchange Replication Service, from writing what’s in RAM to the frozen database files. In the case of the Information Store Service, the current transaction log file (Exx.log) gets rolled and closed out before the Exchange Writer allows VSS to take the snapshot. This ensures nothing changes in the file data between the beginning of the snapshot and the completion, at which point the databases are “thawed”. When databases are thawed write I/O held in RAM is allowed to go to disk again. Here's more information on how an application's VSS writer interacts with VSS with regards to freeze, thaws, and the time needed to get a snapshot completed: CVssWriter::OnFreeze method http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa381563(v=vs.85).aspx The last major responsibility of the Exchange Writer is to tell the Information Store Service (MS Exchange Replication Service in the case of a passive copy backup) that the backup was completed and, if applicable, carry out post-backup tasks like log truncation, marking the database as no longer with a backup in progress, etc. In the part two and part three of this series we’ll look at a play-by-play breakdown of how the elements described above all come together in an Exchange backup, the application log events that get generated, and compare the process for a mounted database to that for a passive database copy.
