This is a guess... so forgive

This is a guess... so forgive me if this transpires to be a red-herring...

...but I have previously been told, by an expert, that the MS Exchange credentials 'username' used by NetBackup must not partially match to any other AD account 'username'.

...for example...

If you have two accounts named:

domain\srv_backup

domain\srv_backup_test

...then when you try to use "domain\srv_backup" within NetBackup, then NetBackup gets confused because it also partially matches against "domain\srv_backup_test".

So, NetBackup requires AD credentials which are completely unique - even to the extent of partial strings.

Apologies - just remembered

Apologies - just remembered something - that the service account for MS Exchange credentials must also not be a 'hidden' account.

There is a major difference between starting a service and actually accessing the exchange environment.
