Netbackup 7.1 and Exchange 2010

Good day
 
I'm running a windows environment, Master Server and 2 Media servers, all on Netbackup 6.5 with Windows 2003 SP2, looking to upgrade to Netbackup 7.1 soon.
 
If anybody uses Netbackup 7 with Exchange do you know if the Netbackup server has to be 64-bit also? Somebody I know ran into a problem where the BackupExec server had to be 64-bit to backup Exchange because of the Management tools. But doesn't Netbackup install a client on the Exchange server instead of using the management tools to do backups?
 
Kind regards
NetB

NBU master and media server is still supported on 32-bit W2003.

You are correct - if Exchange will be backed up as a network client, you only need the NBU client software on the Exchange server.

Hi Riaan

Technically we going to phase out Exchange 2007 and do a fresh install of Exchange 2010 on a Windows 2008R2.

I Just need to know if we need a 64bit Media server or whether a 32bit Media will do. upgrading to Netbackup version 7.1
