Is there a way to hide email address in the global address book? (i.e. administrator and a few other in the Exchange address book, WITHOUT using the hide name within ADS. (I can't hide the address in ADS, as Backup Exec won't backup the mailboxes.)

Thanks

Not really,

You can get people to use a public folder for contacts instead of the GAL, but this won't work for OWA.

What version of exchange is this?  If it is 2003, stop doing brick level backups, they are totally pointless, and will resolve this issue for you (as you can now simply hide them from AD)

Yes, this is Exchange 2003 /w SP2.

I can do a mailbox by mailbox backup, but if I hide the administrator in ADS the Exchange won't get backed up when using Backup Exec 10d.

I think we are getting confused here;

Are you saying that if you hide the administrator account, backup exec doesn't work to backup ANYTHING?

Or, are you saying that if you hide the administrator account, backup exec cannot backup THAT INDIVIDUAL MAILBOX?

If it is the second, stop doing mailbox backups - do information store backups instead

Backup Exec will backup, but will NOT backup any Exchange mailboxes if I hide administrator in ADS.

If I do information store backups can I restore individual mailboxes and individual messages using Backup Exec 10d?

Ahh, good, that was the answer I was hoping for.

Yes, if you do information store backups, you can restore individual mailboxes and or messages - using the recovery storage group.

Some people complain that this process is longer, but the simple fact is, Brick Level Backups (or mailbox backups) are not supported by microsoft, and are useless in a disaster.

How does one use the recovery storage group as I don't see it in Backup Exec 10d.

Like so,

It is an Exchange function, not a BE function - BE will not even realise it is there
