I know that you need to install the Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI Client and Collaboration Data Objects 1.2.1 on your Exchange 2007 server in order to do GRT restores but what about if you are running Exchange 2010? Is this updated out of the box or do I need to install it on the Exchange cluster?

Client is moving to Exchange 2010 and I would like to avoid installing the MAPI client if it will work out of the box.

Check the admin guide for more information (page 59).

Using the MAPI method ended in Exchange 2007.  Later versions use the Exchange Web Services method which does not require a MAPI client.

For Exchange 2010, NetBackup uses Microsoft Exchange Web Services (EWS) to

support a backup that uses the Granular Recovery Technology (GRT).EWSprovides

support for the restore of individual mailboxes, mail messages, and public folders

from an Exchange 2010 database backup.

To use EWS to restore individual items, the client throttling policy is disabled for

the resource credentials you specify for the restore job. The client throttling policy

is located on the Client Access Server and enforces connection bandwidth limits

on the Exchange server.

NetBackup also creates an impersonation role and a role assignment for Exchange

Impersonation. Exchange Impersonation role assignment associates the

impersonation role with the NetBackup resource credentials you specify for the

restore job.

NetBackup creates and assigns the following roles:
