Microsoft Exchange Server Backup Tips

CloudBacko Pro provides an add-on module to back up Microsoft Exchange Server, both for the whole database or selected individual mailboxes. CloudBacko Pro supports multi-destination concurrent backup, continuous backup of database and individual mailboxes, unlimited mail-level backups and directly restore from backup to original database.

Here are two tips to back up Microsoft Exchange Server.

Tip 1: Check that you have installed the MAPI Client and CDO 1.2.1 on the MS Exchange Server

As Microsoft has pulled out the Microsoft Exchange Server Messaging API (MAPI) client libraries and Collaboration Data Objects (CDO) 1.2.1 from Microsoft Exchange 2007 base product installation, Microsoft provides download page from here for access to these API.

CloudBacko Pro requires these libraries be installed. If these libraries are missing, the following error will be shown.

Tip 2: Check that the Windows account used have sufficient permissions to access the Exchange mail boxes.

On the Windows with CloudBacko Pro installed, CloudBacko Pro requires sufficient permission to access the Exchange mail boxes. If the Windows account lacks permission, add the user account to the Domain Admins, Enterprise Admins, and Exchange Organization Administrator groups as shown in the following screen. Then log out and log in the server again.
