how can i open port 25 for backup exec notifications???
Posted on 2007-11-23
I need some help
I have backup exec, versions 9.1, 10d and 11d running on different sites and servers and i would like to set up email notfications on these.
I have correctly configured backup exec but there are issues in getting the email to send from the servers.
I have opened a call with symantec technical support who said backup exec was configured correctly but because port 25 on the servers was not open then
They said "I have done research on the issue and the only way to fix it is to open port 25. For same, we have to setup relay on exchange side so that both the servers can communicate over port 25, and for this you can consult your Exchange Admin. "
How do I open this port and set all of this up, is this best practice and is there another way of setting all of this up?
Current sites setups are that backup exec is installed on the DC whilst exchange is setup on a seperate server.
If you require any more information please contact me and hopefully we will be able to sort this issue out
Thanks in advance
