About configuring the NetBackup Client Service for backups and restores that use Granular Recovery Technology (GRT) or MAPI

To restore individual mailbox and public folder items from database backups, you must configure an account and mailbox for NetBackup to use. This configuration is also required for Exchange 2007 and earlier if you perform MAPI backups of individual mailbox and public folder objects.

NetBackup must have access to Exchange mailboxes and public folders so it can do the following:

  • Enumerate mailboxes when defining a policy.

  • Restore mailbox and public folder objects from the backups that use Granular Recovery Technology (GRT).

  • Perform backups or restores of mailbox and public folder objects with MAPI (Exchange 2007 and earlier).

Note:

For VMware backups and restores of Exchange 2007, the only systems that require configuration of NFS are the following: the systems that you use to browse for backups or the systems you use to perform restores. For Exchange 2010, you need only configure the systems that browse for backups and the CAS server. This configuration is not needed to capture the data during backups of the virtual machine.

Description

Step 1

Create an Exchange mailbox to associate with the NetBackup Client Service.

Symantec recommends that you create a uniquely named mailbox. Verify that this mailbox is not hidden.

Step 2

Configure the NetBackup service account as follows:

  • See the specific procedure for the Exchange version you have.

  • Ensure that the NetBackup service account has domain privileged rights.

See Creating a privileged NetBackup user account for EWS access (Exchange 2010).

See Configuring the NetBackup service account (Exchange 2007).

See Configuring the NetBackup service account (Exchange 2003).

Step 3

Configure the log on account for the NetBackup Client Service.

Symantec recommends that the NetBackup Client Service uses the same account that runs Exchange Services.

See Configuring the log on account for the NetBackup Client Service for NetBackup for Exchange on Windows.
