So, on this child domain DC, you have installed:


Backup Exec 9.1

Trend ScanMail

Exchange 2003


What was the install order?


Did you run domain prep and forest prep? 


What mode is the child domain in?

What mode is the forest domain in?


Is there a Exchange server higher up?


Have you tried to connect to the child domain Exchange using that other ESM?

Hi my issue is outlined as follows:


After installing Windows 2003 Server standard and Exchange 2003, system
manager was not installed. Furthermore, I cannot add it in as a snap-in in


I have backup exec 9.1 running on the machine as well as Trend ScanMail for
Exchange. Apparantly because System Manager was not installed, the store
databases cannot be backed up and Trend will not scan the mailboxes. 


Apart from that I can do a bricks level backup of the mailboxes with the BE
Agent for Exchange.


The server is a Domain Controller in a child domain. It has Exchange 2K3 SP1


Any assistance would be greatfully received.
