Creating a Microsoft Exchange Snapshot

Creating a Microsoft Exchange Snapshot

After a snapshot is created and activated for a Microsoft Exchange instance, a data duplicate group of the Microsoft Exchange instance is generated. Users can read and write duplicates in the duplicate group without changing the source data. The data security is enhanced.


  • At least one Microsoft Exchange instance has been created in the storage system.
  • The snapshot license is valid.


The snapshot created for a Microsoft Exchange instance is actually a snapshot group. Since when you create a snapshot for a Microsoft Exchange instance, you actually create a snapshot for each LUN contained in the Microsoft Exchange instance. You can choose Data Protection > Snapshot to view the snapshot of each LUN contained in the Microsoft Exchange instance.


  1. Log in to DeviceManager.
  2. Choose Provisioning > Application > Microsoft Exchange.
  3. Select the Microsoft Exchange instance for which you want to create a snapshot and click Create Snapshot.

    The Create Snapshot dialog box is displayed.

  4. Set snapshot parameters.

    Table 7-5 describes related parameters.
