Requirements for protecting Microsoft Exchange, SQL, and Active Directory data on virtual machines

Backup Exec can back up and restore individual items from VSS-aware applications that are installed on virtual machines.

The following items are required to protect data for Microsoft Exchange, SQL, and Active Directory on virtual machines:

  • The virtual machine must be turned on.

  • You must enter the appropriate credentials for the virtual machine. Ensure that the credentials for the virtual machine allow access to the VSS-aware applications.

  • The media server must be able to connect to the virtual machine using the network name or IP address.

  • The Backup Exec Remote Agent for Windows Systems must be installed on the virtual machine.

  • The correct number of licenses must be entered for the applications that you want to protect on the virtual machines.

  • The operating system on the virtual machine must support VSS.
