Turning on the Exchange Writer
Posted on 2012-09-11
I have just put Symantec Backup Exec 2012 System Recovery onto a Windows 2003 Server with Exchange.
The backup failed last night because Exchange Writer is disabled.
Here are the steps i have found to enable it... does this look correct?
Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
Locate and then double-click the following registry subkey:
Double-click the Disable Exchange Writer value.
In the Value data text box, change the value from 1 to 0, and then click OK.
Quit Registry Editor.
Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Services.
Stop and then restart the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service.
I am always worried about making registry changes! I believe doing this change will stop NTBackup from backing up exchange? (Im going to turn off NTBackup once Backup Exec is working anyway)
I just need some re-assurance really that this will be ok to carry out :)
