I am backing up some virtual machines with exchange servers on them. with every backup i get two jobs in the primary copy (after backupcopy run):
1) Virtual-Sever which ist the Backup of the VM (Inc or Full)
2) Exchange Database Full(Snap) - and it is always marked as Full(Snap)
When i want to keep my first full of the month i now have a problem with the retention.
my fulls run on saturday. when the first day of the month was wednesday for example this jobs are retained:
1) Virtual-Server backup of Saturday (because its the first Full)
2) Exchange Database Full(Snap) of Wednesday (because all Snaps are Fulls)
So the retained Exchange Backup Snapshot with the metadata does not match the retained virtual-server backup.
is there any elegant solution to this and can i tell commvault that it should keep the dependent snaps.
Why does commvaul not mark the Exchange Snaps as Inc(Snap). This would solve the problem.

There are not storage-arrays involved. The Sanpshot procedure is the default VSA Backup procedure.
