It is very much possible there are compatibility issues. The problem
with Veritas is, they never admit if it is compatibility issues with the
specific OS. We have had real bad experience with Veritas support with
both NetBackup and BackupExec. We don't use any agents for SQL, Oracle
or Exchange anymore. We use NTBackup for all Microsoft application level
backups, and use Veritas only for tape backups, just simple file level
backups of NtBackup images. It works fine, and we save lots of money in
support as well. My advise is, stay away from Veritas Exchange agents,
and use only NTBackup and do disk to disk backups. You can very easily
VBscript the NTbackup jobs, and schedule them. The disk storage is very
cheap, and disk to disk backups are becoming more of a standard now for
applications such as Exchange.

Tom,
Yes, you can use BE 8.6 to backup Exchange. You will need the agents
though to backup the databases. Since you are running Exchange 2003, I
would suggest doing a disk to disk backup of your Exchange using
NTbackup, and then backup the NTbackup image file using BE8.6. This way,
you don't need the BE Exchange agents. This is the recommended backup
model suggested by Microsoft. There are a few articles in Microsoft KB
on how to optimize the NTbackup for best throughput for a scenario like
this. In my case, I use a 200GB USB drive for the disk to disk backups
of Exchange, and I get very good through puts.

Does anyone know if there are any issues with Backup Exec 8.6 and
Exchange 2k3?
Can I use that verison to back up Exchange or do I need 9 or 10?
