I am running backup Exec 11D (rev 7170) on a File and Print server and have the remote agent Rev 7170.0) installed and running on our Exchange server. Can someone tell me why I can't select the .edb files (I can see the files in the selection list but I cannot select them, they are greyed out? I do not have a licence for Aopen, does that have anything to do with it? Please help!

The .EDB files are known to BE and it wants you to have the Exchange agent back them up so it wont let you do a flat file back up of them

So in this scenario, what we be your recommendation to get the .edb files backed up?

You can do a 2 phase backup. Use Windows Backup to backup your exchange and backup the file itself using Backup Exec.

Sorry for wasting everyones time, I actually found my own answer. This product was already installed and I inherited this server from the previous sys admin. The Exchange connector was never installed and a licence key was not provided. Once I installed the Exchange connector by going to tools, then licences. I was able to add the (two) keys that gave us the ability to backup Exchange stores. Thank you for your time everyone.
