Exchange 2010 backup with Windows 2012 R2 Media Server running BE2014
How can I backup Exchange 2010 if my media server is 2012 R2?
According to the Microsoft Exchange Server Supportability Matrix: http://technet.microsoft.com/library/ff728623(v=exchg.150).aspx, Exchange 2010 SP3 is only supported on Windows Server 2012 and not 2012 R2 so I have no way to install the Management Tools.
However, according to this Symantec article: http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO99178, "To protect Exchange Server 2010/2013, you must install Backup Exec on a Microsoft Windows 2008 SP2 or later 64-bit server, Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 64-bit server, Microsoft Windows Server 2012, or Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 64-bit."
Can someone please clarify how this is possible? I can't imagine I would need 2 servers??
