The requirement would be for the media server, not the Exchange server. As such, that post is saying that there is nothing required to be installedmon the media srrver in order to backup Exchange 2010.

Thanks!

We do not need MAPI CDO for Exchange 2010. Exchange 2010 uses EWS. Is your environment a mixed environment with both Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010 installed?

Thanks

...not sure why you are confirming what I confirmed 11 hours ago...???

Thanks!

EDIT: Also the OP states he has Exchange 2010...why post a nonsense question about Exchange 2007?

Craig V,

              I am confirming whether it is a mixed environment or not. In case if there is a mixed environment then we need to check on Exchange 2010 server whether backup Exec is connecting to Exchange 2007. The best way to check it is by running command "get-clientaccessserver" and check if Exchange 2007 is listed there. I am not posting the same thing what you posted.

And it is not a nonsense question. I think you never came across any such scenarios. I work for technical support and this is one of the most common scenarios.

Thanks

...so why didn't you state that initially instead of throwing what's amounted to a random question out there? The OP never mentioned Exchange 2007 at all.

I won't respond to the "I work for technical support" card...check your PM for that. Not getting into a slinging match around that. Needless to say I've done more than enough technical support of my own, and not just focussing on 1 product at a time!

Thanks!

He has not mentioned Exchange 2007 an thats why I asked the question. I don't see any harm in asking questions and confirming th environment.

Thanks
