No, if your server crashes you should be ok with NT backup.  Just
restore the Exchange DB.  Advantages over NT Backup in Veritas and
UltraBac are the individual PST & E-mail restore capabilities.  I
haven't messed with the restore functions in Exchange 2003 for doing
things like this so it may be capable of doing the same, can't say
because I've never used it.  There are also features I like in other
backup packages such as e-mail confirmation that the backup completed
successfully (or with errors) and verified ok.

Just curious, if running Exchange 2003 on Win2003, what is wrong with
using the built-in NT Backup?  Are there any issues/problems?  What does
Veritas give you over the integrated "Exchange-aware" NT backup?

In other words, if I rely solely on the built-in NT Backup, and my
server crashes, is there anything I won't be able to restore?

best regards
