Exchange 2003 Storage group not appear in selection RRS feed

  • Question

  • We used DPM 2010 to back up two different Exchange servers data, one is 2007 and the other is 2003. DPM displays the First storage group and Second storage group as selection on the Ex2k7, but there is no storage group to select in the protection group wizard for the Exchange 2003 server. Is there some hotfix or update needed on the Exchange 2003 box? It's a SBS2003.

    I saw the "set key EnableVssWriter under HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Exchange\Replay\Parameters to 0" from Technet, is it just for Ex 2k7 not for 2k3? The Exchange 2003 is SP2, are there any other update I need to run to make it display in DPM?

  • HI,


    So other pre-requisites are needed, just Exchange 2003 SP2 and kbid 940349.   How did you backup exchange prior to DPM 2010 ?   Did that backup program use shadow copies and were they succcessful recently ? If you run vssadmin list writers, is the Exchange Writer listed ?
