What Agents do I need for BE 2014 for Exchange 2010 in VM Environment?
Posted on 2014-10-01
Here is the setup:
Exchange Server 2010 VM and Backup Exec 2014 VM are 2 virtual machines hosted in a ESXI Environment. Updated BE to the latest service pack
Plan is to backup to an EMC DD160 Dedupe and then to a tape Library (HP Storageworks)
We have purchased and installed the Dedupe Option License and have installed it. Have done some test backups to the DD160 and it is working. When I kick off the job I get the "Back Up Virtual Machine" popup box recommending to select the virtual machine through the virtual host view.
We have also purchased the Backup Exec Agent License for Applications and Databases and have activated it.
The Backup Exec Agent for Windows is installed on the Exchange Server.
We'd like to be able to restore down to the mailbox/message level
Now my questions and hope I am asking these right:
1) Does the Agent for Applications and Databases need to be pushed to the Exchange Server or not? I didn't see a way to do that as when attempting to push it out remotely the only agent showing to push is the one for Windows.
2) Do I need to purchase the Agent for VMware and Hyper V in addition to what I already have?
3) Are there any more agents that need to be purchased in order to backup a VM Exchange 2010 server down to the Granular level?
