    as in the FAQ of TI8 Server mentioned, prior to a backup, the Exchange Services must be stopped.
    Has anyone an example of a script wich stops or suspends the exchange services-->start the TI image process (with all the given options!) --> restart the services.

    Has anyone used Acronis TI Server with an Exchange Server, and restored it successfully?

    Thanks in advance,

    Yes, it can be backed up and restored, but in my experience, it must definitely be stopped for the backup to be accurate. You can run this cmd file to stop it and another with "stop" replaced by "start" to restart it.

    net stop "Microsoft Exchange System Attendant"
    net stop "Microsoft Exchange Event"
    net stop "Microsoft Exchange IMAP4"
    net stop "Microsoft Exchange MTA Stacks"
    net stop "Microsoft Exchange POP3"
    net stop "Microsoft Exchange Routing Engine"
    Check this carefully to be sure you are stopping all the exchange services that you are running.

    We stop it late at night with the "Scheduled Events", then the backup runs thru it's own scheduler and the startup cmd runs thru scheduled events 45 minutes later. We know the backup runs in 15 minutes or less so there is an error margin there!
