Exchange Server Settings

Exchange Server settings

Exchange Server settings are the group of parameters that tune up a Microsoft Exchange server to work perfectly, such as data management and anti-spam rules. Handy Backup can save all Exchange server settings, keeping backups of the message server environment.

What does Exchange Server Settings Mean?

Basically, each Exchange server setting is a parameter related to some rule used by MS Exchange server to handle with some type of data or some situation. An administrator of a server configures all settings, to provide a smooth and perfect run of Exchange communications.

Why to Back It Up?

Saving settings and configurations of a MS Exchange server is an action necessary each time before performing any hardware or software maintenance job on the server. Additional areas of implementation are transferring the Exchange server to a new mainframe or cloning it.

Methods of Backing up Exchange Settings

To save and restore an Exchange configuration, this server software provides a special tool exporting and importing all settings in an XML format. This is the only default way to work with Exchange settings. However, these are the differences between the methods of handling these XML files.

Manual or Script Backup

You can use a batch file or just copy your XML settings file manually to some place, but these methods require some skills and are not free from a risk of a human error. All flaws and inconveniences are at your own risk in the case of such a method you are using.

How to find Exchange server settings on your server? Which XML file contains a fresh copy of settings? You must know all about these things to use the manual method, as well as have some software-administering skills to apply a script or a batch, especially in a fully automated mode.

Using a Dedicated Software Solution

A backup program, such as Handy Backup, can take a burden of an automatic backup Exchange server settings (and, of course, any other information) to itself, relieving a user’s headache about proper storing and regular copying of backup data.
