In theory, you shouldn't have too. However, you're probably going to update the appliance with the latest service pack and/or subsequent patches. Once you do this, it is always advisable to update the RAWS agents on remote servers so that they too are patched.

For the Exchange MC, yes...whatever you require to backup and restore Exchange correctly on a normal Windows-based media server, you'd need to do on the appliance.

I received my appliance but I can't log into it through remote desktop how I will install the software I need on it?

Kindly try to login locally on the appliance and retry to remote it.
