We are using Exchange 2007 Server Enterprise Edition, 64-Bit for our Email system. Everything was working and being backed up correctly until....
We needed to upgrade to Symantec Backup Exec 2010. Apparently, Symantec Backup Exec 2010 requires that the Exchange Management Tools be installed on the Backup Exec media Server in order to Backup Microsoft Exchange. I only have the Installation CD for the 64-bit version of Microsoft Exchange and when I try to do a custom installation (to install the Exchange Management tools) on our Backup Exec Server I receive the following error message.
"The image file D:\Setup.EXE is valid, but is for a machine type other than the current machine." Please see the screen shot.
I believe this error is coming up because the setup.exe is for a 64-bit server and our Backup Exec media server is a 32-bit OS (Windows Server 2003 Std.)
My question is how can I install the Exchange Management tools on the 32-Bit Backup Exec Media Server? I tried calling Microsoft and they told me that they do not have any Cd's or .iso's for Exchange 2007 Enterprise Edition that are 32-bit.
