Don't see Information Store - BKEXEC 8.6
I am using the following configuration:
Have one backup server with the following agents:
Exchange Agent 8.6
SQL Agent 8.6
Option File Option 8.6
Remote NT/2000 Agent 8.6
BENT/2000 Server Edition 8.6
My exchange server is on a separate server. I have the exchange system admin
tool installed on the backup server, and am able to connect fine. I also
have outlook installed and am able to connect via mapi to exchange server.
When I go to backup selection with backup exec, I only see options to backup
the exchange mail boxes, and not the information store or directory. Is
there something that I am missing, or do I need another license to be able
to backup the information store as well.
Can someone please advise?
