i have installed the outlook client and configured with account on the exchange server but when i try to configure the backup agent for exchnage i am still getting the same error " failed to get information from account EC=1314" would you like to retry or configure later?
what does this mean? how can i get past this?
i want to be able to back up these log files so that they will be removed afterwards? will a windows backup do this for me?

For the first question What is you BAckup Solution, Arcserve , Backup Exec ? version ?
Have you send an email to your account to activate it ?
2°) A Ntbackup solution will delete the transaction logs after the backup
Just select the Ms Exchange Information stores in the NtBackup Job configuration.

After receiving the error, choose the option that you do not want to retry the configuration and continue.  then you will receive a message that you will not be able to do brick level backups but will be able to do database level.  Go into the ARCserve manager and try to expand the brick level.  If it expands, configuration was actually fine and you will be able to back up.  If not, make sure SP4 is applied (assuming ARCserve 2000).  There will be a file exchuser.exe in the directory you installed the agent to.  Run the program and you will be asked for a user name, mailbox alias, password and domain name.  This will try to create the user and mailbox for you, which you can then try to authenticate.
Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

tried running the exchuser.exe and it failed

checked summary log and it is as follows;

User Name:
 Mailbox Name:
 Domain Name:
 1) Create new user without Active Directory - successful.
 2) User mailbox creation - failed.
 3) Add user privilege to act as part of the operating system - successful.
 4) Add user privilege to log on as a service - successful.
 5) Add user privilege to log on locally - successful.
 6) Add user to Administrators Group - successful.
 7) Add user to Backup Operators Group - successful.
 8) Add user to Domain Admins Group - failed.

1°) Have you test to create the mailbox manually for the dbagent account...
2°) Any events in your Windows Application event log ?

What is your Exchange version ?
If 5.5 you have to log on the server with the Exchange service account ?
