Preparing for GRT Backup/Restore Job for Exchange

Created: 12 Jun 2013 • Updated: 13 Jun 2013 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

One of the requirements for running a GRT backup/restore of Exchange is to "perform a custom installation of the Exchange Service Packs".  I am following this Symantec tech article:  I am not sure how to do a custom installation and also whether I need to install all three of the service packs on my media server or just SP3.  I am at SP3 on my Exchange 2007 server running Windows 2003 x64.  Media server is running Windows Server 2003 x32.  

What is a "custom installation" and how do I perform one?  

What are the implications of installing a service pack when the base software, in this case Exchange, is not installed on the Media server?

Check this Microsoft article how to install the Exchange 2007 Management Tools (on your Backup Exec media server).

You only have to install the latested Service Pack (SP3), this will include all patches of previous Service Packs.

        You ned to have the exchange management tools on your media server in order to perform GRT backups and restores of exchange.

-You would need to download the exchange server 2007 service pack 3 install onto your media server. 

-once  done launch the install you should be presented with the option to perform a default or custom install

-select customer and on check the exchange management tools box and complete install
