Introduction 1. For information on backing up individual mailboxes of an Exchange Server see our Exchange Mailbox Add-on whitepaper: www. Local Exchange 2 2 mailbox backup Remote Exchange 2 2 mailbox backup 1 Refer to the Remote Exchange requirements section for more information. Refer to our Exchange Mailbox Whitepaper for more information. Exchange is running on a different server than your backup server you will need to install the Exchange Server Management Tools on the machine where BackupAssist is installed, which should be a machine running Windows , XP or NTBackup will be used to back up the remote Exchange information store.
Note: this method cannot be used to back up Exchange remotely. If BackupAssist is running on a bit operating system: Install the Exchange Server Management Tools bit from the installation disc or setup file used to install Exchange on your remote server.
If you have installed a version of Exchange Server that came pre-packaged with Exchange Service Pack 1, you will need to make a small alteration to the Windows registry due to a change made by Microsoft.
Note: if you installed Service Pack 1 after installing Exchange Server the change should not be required. Excerpt from Microsoft article: To adhere to the Microsoft Secure by Default initiative, the remote streaming functionality server-wide in Exchange SP1 is disabled by default.
Backing up Exchange using NTBackup 2. If you already have an NTBackup job you can skip to section 2. Launch BackupAssist and from the File menu select New backup job. Choose NTBackup and click Next. Continue configuring the job according to your requirements.
You will need to configure Exchange backup after you have finished creating the job. This is described in section 2. If you do not need to select data in the Files and folders step, click Next and then Ignore when prompted.
For details on mailbox backups refer to the Exchange Mailbox Add-on white paper. To add an Exchange Server to your job: 1. From the left menu under Job settings select Exchange Servers. A window will appear that displays all of the available Exchange Servers on the network. Note: If your Exchange Server resides on a different domain to that of the machine where BackupAssist is installed you can enter the name or IP address of the Exchange Server and click Search.
Click Add to add the selected Exchange Servers to your backup selections. Check Backup storage groups for each Exchange Server you want to back up. Now select which storage groups to back up for each Exchange Server: o Check Select all storage groups if you wish to back up all storage groups and any future storage groups that are created recommended.
You can exclude specific storage groups if required by unchecking them, but all future storage groups created will still be backed up. No storage groups created in the future will be backed up, only those selected. Click Apply changes when you have finished making your selections. This example follows from the backup process completed during section 2. This example assumes that Exchange Server is installed on the system.
If you backed up Exchange Server using a VSS application backup refer to section 6 for the required restoration steps. Launch the Exchange System Manager from the Start menu. Expand the Servers tree to locate the appropriate server and storage group screenshot below.
Now click the Restore and manage media tab. Locate the backup file or tape you wish to restore from and expand this tree until you locate the Exchange Server Information Store.
Select each storage group you wish to restore: 7. Click Start Restore. You will be prompted with several choices: o In this example we are restoring to a local Exchange Server so the Restore To field has been filled with the computer name of the local machine.
Windows Backup will create the directory if it does not already exist. If you are restoring an incremental or differential backup, you should refer to the section 8 for help. Click OK to begin the restore of your Exchange Server. Your Exchange information store should be restored, mounted and operational. Backing up Exchange using VSS 4.
During the Files and Folders step select the Exchange Server and any other VSS applications that you want to back up: Note: locally installed VSS applications will be automatically detected and listed for selection. In some cases only applications that are currently running will be detected. If an application is not listed in the Files and Folders tab, try re-starting it and then click the Refresh button in BackupAssist. Volumes containing a VSS application that you want to back up must be fully selected.
If you choose a VSS application to back up, the volumes that must be included for backup are listed in red. You can click the Select required volumes button if a required volume is not in your selections. If you are editing an existing job, navigate to Volume selection from the left menu for a Windows Imaging job on Server and Files and folders from the left menu for any other job: 5.
Running a backup of your Exchange Server To test your Exchange Server backup you can either run your backup job manually or wait for the next scheduled backup to occur.
When an Imaging, File Replication, Rsync or Zip job runs, BackupAssist will automatically perform a consistency check on your Exchange Server and truncate log files to correctly back up the Exchange information store. For NTBackup jobs BackupAssist backs up your Exchange Server during the second phase of the backup process, after the selected data files and system state both optional have been backed up. This helps to eliminate an issue with Windows Backup NTBackup where a backup of both the system state and Exchange Server information store in the same pass fails.

Select Deployment Tools. Click on Deploy the First Exchange Server. Click on New Exchange Installation. Ensure that the server is operating properly and meets all of the Exchange requirements: Run dcdiag to ensure properly connectivity to the domain controller.
If tests did not pass, correct the problem and re-run dcdiag before moving on. If everything looks good, check off this box and move on. Run netdiag. If errors appear, correct them and then re-run the test. Your Active Directory Forest must now be prepared so that it can support Exchange.
Note that Forestprep should be run only once per AD Forest! Click on the Run Forestprep link. If a compatibility warning message appears, click Continue. Make sure you read the entire licensing agreement and memorize it — you will be tested on this later. If you agree to the agreement, click I Agree and then Next. If prompted, enter your digit CD key and then click Next. Choose a different file location if you need to use Browse. Then click Next. It is recommended to leave the default administrator account here, click Next , and allow forestprep to run.
Note that this will take some time and you should just leave the server alone. You do not want to interrupt this! Click Finish when your forest preparation has completed. You can then check off this box in the pre-installation list. You now have to run Domainprep in any domain that will host Exchange servers or Exchange users. Click the Run Forestprep Link.
You will then be presented with the Component Installation Screen.
Make sure the following appears: Typical for Component: Microsoft Exchange Server. Install for Component: Microsoft Exchange Messaging and Collaboration Services. Microsoft Exchange System Management Tools. You can then change the installation path if needed.
Once everything is setup properly, click Next. Now type the name of the Exchange Organization that you chose. Once you type the name, click Next. Once again, you need to click I Agree to the licensing agreement and click Next.
You will then be presented with an installation summary. If everything looks good, click Next. The installation of the server will then run. Once the installation has completed, click Finish.
Post-Installation Tasks Well now that Exchange Server has been successfully installed, you can take a vacation and everything will run correctly, right? The following are some of the more important post-installation tasks that you will need to complete: Launch Exchange System Manager. Expand the Servers folder. Right click on your server and click Properties. Choose the Mailbox Management tab. Choose when you want mailbox management to run and how to report. Expand the tree under your server and expand the Protocols folder.
