Exchange Backup

By azizhakim ·
Good Morning members,I have this dilemma about backups that is confounding me,although i am not in a production enviroment,emulating backup scenarios has baffled me.Literature on backups are routeine procedures,but here it is.I have entirely two domains (one NT40) one Active Directory.both are independant fot study,Exch
5.5 is running on NT 40 Domain,pop,owa etc.Exchange2000 is running on AD Domain.Microsoft backup software on NT40.Evaluation Veritas 8.6 on Exchange2000.Just installed both with a few mailboxes on each.When I run either a scheduled or my initiated backup on either platforms,the verification notification displays all my mailboxes could not be backed
up.All mailboxes are closed.The log says"mailbox skipped-you do not have sufficient permission.Veritas suggested to consult admin.I am logged on as admin.Made myself backup opreators as well,although that is not needed.Any thoughts from backup experts will be most welcome and Thanx

The Backup Exec Server service account also needs to have Admin permissions in Exchange in order to backup individual mailboxes. That's likely what your problem is. Check http://support.veritas.com/ for more detailed procedure.

Just did this last week.
Create a mailbox for the backup account.
And connect using that account to the mailboxes. When connecting to to the mailboxes it will ask for a username and password, use the one of the backup account, and that's it.
note: for one reason or another it will take about an hour for exchange to know to use mailbox and the account attached to it.

contact me if you need more help.
