Backup Exec 2012 on Exchange 2010 Server

Created: 30 Aug 2012 • Updated: 11 Dec 2013 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Is it acceptable to run BUE 2012 core on an Exchange 2010 server?

I know it would not be preferred but is it a supported configuration from Symantec?

 

Thanks!

As such there are no issues but its always recommended to use a dedicated server for Backup Exec.

There is no problem running BE on your Exchange server.  However, you need to be mindful of the load on the server when BE is running its backups.  Although most backups are done at night, there could be still users using Exchange or the server could be replicating to other servers, etc.  As long as the load is tolerable, then it is o.k. to go ahead.
