Multi-Exchange version environment DPM backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • DPM 2012 RTM

    Exchange 2010 V14.2 Build 247.5

    Exchange 2007 V8.3 Build 83.6

    ESEUTIL and ESE.DLL installed on DPM Server:

    Background:  Company is currently 3/4 through migration from Exchange 07 to 10.  Currently using DPM to backup the Exchange 10 environment and BUEXEC 12 to backup Exchange 07.   I need to hopefully move our 07 backups to DPM.   I took over DPM recently and reviewing protected computer software requirements and see a couple things that raises questions

    Q:  1)  If I'm have the ESE versions indicated above on the DPM 2012 server will I be able to backup an Exchange Server 2007 that is in a Clustered Continuous Replication Configuration.

    2)  Re: KB940006 Update Rollup 4; as I'm on SP3 I don't think this applies?  Isn't UR4 from the RTM release?

  • Hello,

    DPM will support Clustered Continuous Replication as DPM is CCR aware. Here is a good article on DPM and Exchange protection. It is old (DPM 2007) but still applies all the way up to DPM 2012.

    Also you should use the ESEUTIL from Exchange 2010 as it is backwards compatible so you can protect older versions of Exchange on the same DPM server.
