Outlook 2010 on Exchange 2010

Is it ok to install Outlook 2010 64-Bit on Exchange 2010 SP3 Mailbox Server.  We are doing this for Brick-Level restores for mailboxes using CommVault Backup Software.  Will there be any issues in doing this?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


For as far as i know this isn't an issue. I have seen more than 1 implementation where Outlook was placed on an Exchange server.
Only thing to keep in mind (as always), security updates.
Radhakrishnan RSenior Technical LeadCommented:

Earlier  versions of Exchange (2003) this was not possible due to an incompatibility with the outlook MAPI binaries, and the versions that shipped with Exchange. Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 /2012 no longer ships with the client side binaries. Now it is supported to install Outlook on the same computer on which you have installed Exchange.

Hope this helps.
