You talk about a backup script, can you elaborate on this issue?
Oh, I really wish I could. There's an existing setup that I have to decode and understand so that I can troubleshoot. It may, in fact, be most of the issue. Now that I have Exchange out of the way, the backup mess is my next to-do. Currently there's some custom mess in there, I only got general info on it. Apparently it backs up the SBS to an external hard disk, and deltas were mentioned, so it may be incremental. There's also some black box magic going on which uses the backup to make a VM, I'm told, and the backup and/or VM is being periodically uploaded to offsite storage.
We just finished a big project this week, changed colos for the production servers, so I'm hoping I'll have more time to dig into the SBS issues.
That process sounds very much like an MSP style backup. I know products like Zenith, ShadowProtect, etc that can do forever incrementals, roll them up, create VMs on the fly automatically, as well as upload offsite.
