Back-up and recovery Exchange 2010 with Veeam Back-up and replication (enterprise) part 2/3

This blog is part two of three of how you can make a back-up and more importantly of how you can recover items from a mailbox. In part one I described which setting to set for a exchange 2010 back-up job.  In this part I will explain how to configure the virtual lab and application group  that are necessary for restoring exchange items from a specific mailbox. I will also show how to make a surebackup verification job. The virtual lab and application group are part of the surebackup option of Veeam.

SureBackup is technology in Veeam Backup & Replication which can  be used to have a automate and simplify backup verification process. Within surebackup the virtual machine  runs directly form the back-up in a isolated environment and I will test if all the depended services are up and running. For exchange it will test if all ports are are up and running like port 25 for example. Within the surebackup section of the software you can make a job to test the back-up automatically. In the picture below you see the the SureBackup section and below this there is a member called Jobs here is where you will make the testing job.

best android app ever!! ;)

andriod loves appleI am a person that has two phones one for business and one for private. Why? I just want to keep private and working live separated. But this is not always possible. So I got two cell phones one IPhone 🙂 and one android. And I must say the android is fine but there is a difference. So i like the IPhone more than the android and i don’t want to walk around with two phones all the time so I forwarded the calls that are made to the android phone to the IPhone but I was still missing the SMS that where send! Yeah the old school thing before whatsapp  😉   so I was looking for a app that will forward my SMS including the sender data (name and phone number). There are several free apps that will do this for you but without the senders data and that’s not handy. So I found a paid app for android that works great! And yes it is a paid app! So what did the android community brought us more than the Iphone community? I don’t know! If you want a good app you must paid for it (There are always exceptions). The app is called SMS Forwarder Pro and can be found in the market place for €1,15 ! I think this is the best app ever for an android ;) 

So in the end I think all android phone users dream of apple because why else would this app exist ;)
