Requirements for both the Exchange Mailbox Archiving Option and the File System Archiving Option

Some requirements apply to both the Backup Exec Exchange Mailbox Archiving Option and the Backup Exec File System Archiving Option. You should also review the requirements that apply to each specific option.

Following are the requirements that apply to both the Backup Exec Exchange Mailbox Archiving Option and the Backup Exec File System Archiving Option (Archiving Option):

  • The media server must be part of a domain. You cannot install the Archiving Option on a server in a workgroup.

  • The media server must have enough space to store the Archiving Option index files. When you install the Archiving Option, you are prompted to provide a path where the index files are stored. The path must be on a local NTFS volume. Paths on FAT and FAT32 partitions are not supported.

Note:

Symantec recommends that you have more RAM available in addition to Backup Exec's base requirements.
