FIXED: Exchange 2010 SP1/SP2 DAG on VMWare fail over with Veeam


If you have a DAG setup in your Exchange 2010 SP1/SP2 environment and running Veeam as your OS/Application backup solution you will need to make some cluster timeout changes. The reason is that when Veeam takes the snapshot to then do a VSS backup it will cause the databases in the DAG to fail over and cause lots of alerts.

Below is a simple .bat file script that you can run on a mailbox server inside the cluster. You only need to run this once on one server that is part of a dag. Also, do a reboot at the end. You will also notice that I have the default settings REM’d out at the end in case you want to put it all back.
