Will Restore's picture

from the Symantec NetBackup™ for Microsoft Exchange Server Administrator’s Guide

■ The NetBackup client software is installed as follows:

■ In a non-VMware environment, on the computer that has the databases you want to back up.

Install the NetBackup client software on the computer that has the Exchange

Server, any off-host clients, and all CAS servers that are used for mailbox

databases. In an Exchange Server cluster, install the NetBackup client on

each node in the cluster.

■ In a VMware environment, the NetBackup client software must be installed

on the virtual machines that have Exchange running.
