Symantec recommends to have Exchange Managment tools installed on the Backup Server even though backups and restores are working.

I beleive you need to have the management tools installed when you want to have GRT backup . I guess backup exec needs it when wrting catalog information to tape where in it needs to expand to individaul mailboxes and may for generating the restore selection list for GRT backup set which is stored on disk.

The user said that he can restore mail without the tools installed, so why are the tools needed?
