Backing Up Exchange Server 2007 With Backup Exec

by Brad Fair

The Problem – Backing Up Exchange 2007 in Backup Exec

It’s not that difficult, but if you’ve never done it before, there are two gotcha’s you’ll need to watch out for.

The Solution – MAPI CDO and Exchange Management Tools

On the backup server, you’ll need to install the Exchange Management Tools. You can download them for 32 bit operating systems from here.

On the Exchange server, you’ll need to install the MAPI CDO from here before backups will work.

If you’re in some sort of Exchange Cluster (CCR for instance), make sure you install the MAPI CDO on all Exchange Mailbox machines, and back up to the Exchange Cluster’s hostname. It may be difficult to find in Backup Exec, you may need to type it in manually rather than browse for it.

As always, if you need any help, just post a comment or give me a call at 405-624-3214.
