I wish to use Symantec Backup Exec to backup Exchange. Should I install Symantec on the Exchange server or a separate server?
My reason for asking is that Symatec requires a SQL instance to be installed - Exchange and SQL Server shouldn't be installed on the same server.
What is the best option/normal setup?
1.) Symantec & Exchange & SQL on same server
2. )Symantec & Exchange on same server - SQL instance on separate server
3.) Symantec and SQL on same server - Exchange on separate server
Option 1 has been tried already using SQL Server 2005 and Symantec won't back up properly as SQL services keep randomly stopping. Would SQL Express be a better option here?
