The Enterprise Server Edition (ESE) uses VSS to back up components that support it, e.g. SQL Server and Exchange.
By default, ESE will perform a full VSS backup.
The VSS backup types supported by the ESE are:
- FULL (default)
Note: For a full desciption of VSS backup types, refer to this article.
To change the default VSS behaviour of your ESE Agent:
- In your ESE installation folder, open the a5backup.properties file (usually located within C:\Program Files).
- Edit the line containing the option "vss.backup.type" set to the types listed above. (Add the line if it doesn't exist.)
- Save the file.
- Stop and then restart the Agent's Windows service.
