Hi, You can find Symantec


You can find Symantec NetBackup for Microsoft Exchange Administrator's Guide for Windows from the below link...

For restoring individual mail/public folder you have to use GRT option while backing up exchange, and you have to do some configuration on Netbackup Client Service and Netbackup service account.

Hope this information helps...


some more information about exchange 2010

Dear All,

some more information regarding my previous post

Exchange server: Exchange server 2010 SP1

Netbackup version:  Netbackup 7.0.1

Clustering:  Exchange server 2010 SP1 is clustered with another Exchange 2010 SP1 server.

SAN: We have to take the backup of this Exchange cluster server via SAN by installing the Media server.


My questions are:

1) Is Exchange server 2010 SP1 is compatible for Netbackup 7.0.1 ?

2) For clustered Exchange server, i think we have to install the Media server on both the nodes of the cluster, because Media server is not supported on the clustered environment for Netbackup 7.0.1 ?

3) For single email or public folder restore, what are the best practices ?

4) What else any further configurations & considerations must be kept in mind for this exchange implementation ?

waiting for the quick response.

thanks for the all.

1) Latest compatibility

1) Latest compatibility Guide:

NetBackup 7 Application/Database Agent (CL):

p.3 :

Microsoft Exchange 2010 SP1 on Windows Server 2008 SP2 and Windows 2008 R2

NetBackup Version Start of Support: NetBackup 7.0.1

2) You can either install normal NBU client or NBU media server on Exchange nodes. Normal client is covered in Admin Guide mentioned in Kiran Bandi's post.

If you want media server installation, see

NetBackup High Availability Guide

Appendix D covers configuration of Application Cluster for Media Server and Storage Unit config.  Exchange backup config is still covered in NBU for Exchange admin guide.

3) Config GRT backups. See NBU for Exchange Admin Guide.

4) All of above-mentioned documentation should be sufficient.


Good luck!

Thanks for your support, i will do


Thanks a lot for your support, i will do all the steps mentioned and tell you the whole story.




some more information about my second (2) point

Some more information about my second (2) point is :

The backup of the Exchange is required to be taken through SAN, so that's why i think we would definitely go with the Media server at each node  &

the cluster nodes for Exchange are active-active  not  the active-passive.




Correct - you will need Media

Correct - you will need Media Server installation on each node. Just double-check with your Symantec reseller that you have sufficient license keys.

Still Backup Job are failing


We have one netback master server and 2 media servers.

i have installed media servers on my both Exchange 2010 nodes on server 2008 R2

bt  i m unable to take the backup on storage.

is there any further configuration  i need to done.
