About configuring a VMware backup that protects Exchange Server, using Replication Director to manage snapshot replication
Use the following steps to configure a NetBackup for VMware backup that protects Exchange Server and use Replication Director to manage snapshot replication. This feature requires the NetBackup Replication Director license.
Table: Steps to configure a VMware backup that protects Exchange Server, using Replication Director to manage snapshot replication
Configure your VMware environment and add the necessary licenses.
On each ESX server that hosts the database, add the NetBackup for Exchange license and the Enterprise Client license.
Install the NetBackup client software on the virtual machines that have Exchange running.
Install the Veritas VSS provider.
Create a storage lifecycle policy (SLP).
Configure the NetBackup Client Service to log on with an account that has access to the NetApp filer.
To browse and restore granular items in the VMware backup snapshot copy, you must configure the logon account for NetBackup Client Service. This account must have access to the CIFS shares that are created on the NetApp disk array.
If you want to restore individual mailbox and public folder items from the VMware backup, review the requirements for granular recovery.
Configure a VMware policy with an SLP storage unit and enable Replication Director.
Create a policy as follows:
For complete details on how to configure Replication Director with VMware backups, see the NetBackup Replication Director Solutions Guide.
On the NetBackup server, configure the mappings for distributed application restores.
For backups in a DAG or cluster or if you use a proxy host, you must map the application hosts and component hosts in your environment. For example, each DAG node must be able to access a backup image using the DAG name. Configure these mappings in thehost property on the master server.
On the NetBackup server, review the auto-discovered mappings for the hosts in your environment.
In certain scenarios, a NetBackup host has additional host names or shares a particular name with other hosts. For example, each DAG node must be mapped to the DAG name. Approve each validthat NetBackup discovers in your environment. Perform this configuration in the properties on the master server.
