Backup Exec 9.1 Error when Trying to Backup Mailboxes
Posted on 2004-04-09
I'm trying to backup the mailboxes on an Exchange 5.5 Server that is on another server using Veritas Backup Exec 9.1.
When I'm creating the backup job and select the checkbox for Microsoft Exchange Mailboxes, I get the error:
Logon account "System Logon Account" failed to access "\\IMSNT1\Microsoft Exchange Mailboxes". Access is denied.
The "System Logon Account" is the domain administrator. In the Exchange Administorator, the domain administrator has "Service Account Admin" permissions. When I log in as the domain administrator, I'm able to access any user's mailbox through Outlook.
I get this error through other accounts that have access to user's mailboxes.
I'm trying to do a through "just in case" backup of the Exchange Server as I'm planning to upgrade it to 2003 this weekend. Unfortunatley, my timing is poor as last week I did a clean wipe and install on the working W2K with Backup Exec 8.6, upgrading it to W2K3 with Backup Exec 9.1.
