This issue has been solved. See solution.

I just came accross an article that states to install exchange tools on my backup exec server, actually its a requirement.

Exchange is 2010

Backup Exec is 2012 on Server 2008 r2 x64

Q: Really, is it really a requirement?

Q: Why have my backups been working fine without the tools installed up until now?

Yes it is requirement for GRT backup of exchange 2010

So even though backup have been running fine it is good that you should configure as per Symantec recommendation and for stability of both backup and restores.

Ensure you install same level of management tool on media server by checking else.DLL version of exchange server in X-program files -microsofot -bin folder.

Additionally check the below thread too
