Backing up individua Exchange 2007l mailboxes with Backup exec 2010

Hi,

Im trying to to backup exchange 2007 with exec 2010 and all i can select is First Storage Group (doesn’t expend to individual mailboxes.

I have valid exchange agent license,
 im using Administrator as a BE account which is part of Exchange Organization Administrators.
 I opened Backup Exec > tools>options> Microsoft exchange>and selected Enable legacy mailbox support.
I have mamangement tools installed on my backup exec media server
On exchange server i have installed Messaging API and Collaboration Data objects

Is there something im missing?

Ps. Backup Exec is running on Win2008 SP2 32-bit and Exchange on 2008 SP2 64-bit

Thanks

Hi,

Yes...i can see individual mailboxes in restore mode.

So there is no way to specify which mailboxes i want to back up?

Actually I have not seen such option in 11d and in 12.5 version of Backup exec. It have seen it in older versions.
