NetBackup for Exchange agent
Licensing for Exchange is specific to an MS-Exchange-Server policy and does not support an Exchange server that is backed up using any virtualization policy, such as VMware. Administrators can use any of the following ways to verify if the Exchange database size that is reported by the accurate licensing method is correct.
Use the Microsoft Exchange Management shell command that is available by default on the Exchange server.
Get-MailboxDatabase -Status | select Name,DatabaseSize
Use the help Get-MailboxDatabase command to see more information about this command.
Check the properties of Exchange database file (.edb) that was backed up on the Exchange server to view the size of the file.
Table: Reporting for Exchange backup environments
Database Availability Group (DAG)
A user can choose a DAG directive to back up all Exchange databases or back up an individual database of the DAG as a standalone database backup.
Overlap is reported for a DAG. Regardless of which node you use to back up the Exchange DAG database, the capacity licensing report identifies the database uniquely across DAG nodes, and identifies overlap. (You can back up an Exchange DAG database from any node based on the server preference list that is configured in the backup policy.) The protected data size is calculated from the node that is used to backup the Exchange DAG database.
Standalone Exchange server
For a standalone Exchange environment, protected data is reported. For multiple policies that have common databases, overlap is identified.
