Truncate Exchange Server transaction log when using HyperBackup

Summary

When running HyperBackup task, a snapshot of Hypervisor is taken to back up. However, since VSS on virtual machine does not run, truncating Exchange Server transaction log is not performed.

Workaround

Truncating transaction log requires VSS-enabled snapshot on virtual machines.
AIP 2018 Update 7 includes two types of scripts for PowerShell and VBS for truncating Exchange Server transaction log.
* When the use of PowerShell is not allowed, please use VBS.

When configuring the schedule settings for HyperBackup, please select [Advanced Option] – [Script to execute after the snapshot is taken] for the script located in the following path.
* Please log in as a user in the Domain [administrator] and enable administrative share.
