Exchange 2003 SP2 upgrading Agent Issues
I have an Exchange 2003 servers 1 front end and 2 mail stores. I have been using Backup Exec 11D to backup the systems.
We have upgraded our Backup Envorment (Server library and softare).
So I have got a New Backup system running Backup Exec 2010R3 fully patched.
I was able to install the Agent on 2of 3 Exchange servers. The front end and one of the mailstore servers. My issue is when I try and install the Upgraded agent on the last Exchange server I run into trouble. It gets to the point of 50% Installing the .NET 2.0 and hangs.
If I run the Remote agent deploy to upgrade the agent, it is not long that I get a admin noting that email is not being recieved, and on checking the exchange server I see that there is a service trying to be stopped (the SMTP service), it just stays at stopping and does not allow me to do much elase with the server. I am able to reboot the servier properly and it will continue one running properly.
So now I have a backup job running on both enviroments to make sure my backups run. I would like to have all the servers running /backing up on the new systems. Though want to see if anyone else has ran into any such issue? or for a real solution.
