Exchange Admin Center language

Depending on your computer language settings, Exchange Admin Center can take those and open in a language you actually don't want to use.
You'll Google that this can be changed if administrator/ admin user has mailbox by openening OWA settings and changing Regional parameters.

But usually Admin user does not have mailbox or you don't want her/him to have it. You will search again and find that you can add mkt=en-US (as an example) to the URL of the Exchange Admin Center (https://yourexchangehostname/ecp?ExchClientVer=15&mkt=en-US)

Third option you have is opening Internet Explorer settings (I am using Windows 2016)


Click languagesClick Set Language Preferences

Add language you want to use by clicking Add language
Use Move up or Move Down options to put desired language on topClose Internet ExplorerOpen it again and login again to Exchange Admin Center

Backup/Restore of Exchange 2010 using Windows Backup

All of us, who grew up using ntbackup for backing up Exchange databases by using disk-to-disk-to-tape method, were unsatisfied when we discovered that in Windows 2008 it was not possible anymore to use ntbackup as the tool of choice. Exchange 2007 backup was therefore complicated or impossible to execute with native tools.With Exchange 2010 and Windows 2008 R2 it is possible to backup/recover Exchange databases by using Windows Backup tool. It uses VSS engine but supports truncating the Exchange logs when proper backup method is used.When creating Backup Schedule it is necessary to select Custom and not Full server backup. The reason lies in VSS backup method. We need to select VSS Full backup later on.When we click Advanced settings, VSS full backup must be selected in order logs to be properly truncated.
