I have recently upgraded one of our servers to Backup Exec version 2010 R3.
I was backing up the exchange/first storage group as part of my normal backup run but had not yet installed the updated remote agents as thought it would need each server to be rebooted so scheduled for a later date after working hours.
I could see from the job logs that even though the updated agents were not installed that the data was being backed up. Is shows as 90gb being backed up from the exchange information store.
Now I am trying to restore a previous version of a mailbox but when I look in the information store folder from the restore catalogue there is nothing there. The job log proves that 90gb is being backup up though.
I have installed the agents now but still cannot see the contents from the tape.
The message in the job log states:
The following backup sets contain Microsoft Exchange data. Due to the integration between Exchange and Active Directory Symantec recommends that you install and use the Active Directory Recovery Agent to better manage your Microsoft Exchange data:
\\exchange\Microsoft Information Store\First Storage Group
