do i need to have it on both server's ?
so it's not required on both ? if yes, why ? because be uses EWS ? if yes, is MAPI still somehowe involved in the bcakup restore process ?
We do not need MAPI CDO for Exchange 2010. Exchange 2010 uses EWS. Is your environment a mixed environment with both Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010 installed?
...not sure why you are confirming what I confirmed 11 hours ago...???
EDIT: Also the OP states he has Exchange 2010...why post a nonsense question about Exchange 2007?
I am confirming whether it is a mixed environment or not. In case if there is a mixed environment then we need to check on Exchange 2010 server whether backup Exec is connecting to Exchange 2007. The best way to check it is by running command "get-clientaccessserver" and check if Exchange 2007 is listed there. I am not posting the same thing what you posted.
And it is not a nonsense question. I think you never came across any such scenarios. I work for technical support and this is one of the most common scenarios.
...so why didn't you state that initially instead of throwing what's amounted to a random question out there? The OP never mentioned Exchange 2007 at all.
I won't respond to the "I work for technical support" card...check your PM for that. Not getting into a slinging match around that. Needless to say I've done more than enough technical support of my own, and not just focussing on 1 product at a time!
He has not mentioned Exchange 2007 an thats why I asked the question. I don't see any harm in asking questions and confirming th environment.
