About NetBackup for Exchange

NetBackup for Microsoft Exchange Server extends the capabilities of NetBackup to include online backups and restores of Exchange databases when Exchange Server is installed. This capability is provided as an add-on or extension to the NetBackup for Windows client software. Because this product is tightly integrated with the Backup, Archive, and Restore interface, this topic only gives an overview of NetBackup functionality. In general, backup and restore operations for Exchange files are identical to other NetBackup file operations.

About NetBackup for Exchange

NetBackup for Microsoft Exchange Server extends the capabilities of NetBackup to include online backups and restores of Exchange databases when Exchange Server is installed. This capability is provided as an add-on or extension to the NetBackup for Windows client software. Because this product is tightly integrated with the Backup, Archive, and Restore interface, this topic only gives an overview of NetBackup functionality. In general, backup and restore operations for Exchange files are identical to other NetBackup file operations.
