Hello all,

Firstly I do backup to tape via dbcopy and will continue to do so.

As all of our estate is now on esx5i I have started to backup my 4 gw servers domain, poa*2, datasync to a single veeam backup session (all sles11.1). This is mainly for dr purposes but I thought it could help in rapid recovery of the odd lost email or to view deleted messages without having to setup an archive directory which can be time consuming if the files have been archived to tape.

My question is, do I need to package a replica server or add a replica to one of the gw servers to be able to get access to the mailboxes, I was thinking I may need to 1. to use console one 2. to be able to login.

Thanks for any advice.
