    How is Simpana Galaxy 8 compatability with Exchange Server 2010? Do DAGs present an issue with the iData Agent?

    Exchange 2010 is supported when using Simpana 8.0.  You will need to backup the DAG databases from the current active node.  See below and let me know if you have any questions.

    Exchange Database iDataAgent

    The Exchange Database iDataAgent for Exchange Server 2010 must be installed on a 64-bit computer that hosts the Exchange Server 2010 application with the Exchange 2010 Mailbox Server role. To install this iDataAgent, follow the procedure to Install the Exchange iDataAgents and select the iDA for Exchange 2010 Database option on the Select Platforms dialog during the installation.

    DAG Configurations

    For DAG configurations, the Exchange Database iDataAgent must be installed on each physical node of the DAG group.

    In a configuration where a CAS server (or another proxy configuration) will be used to back up multiple DAG nodes, the CAS server should be used to configure the Exchange profile information during install. After the installation is complete, configure the multiple exchange server names separated by semi colons in the Exchange iDataAgent's Agent properties.

    Other Exchange-Based Agents

    The following Exchange Agents must be installed as 32-bit components on a Microsoft Windows x64 platform. See Install 32-bit Exchange Agents on a Windows x64 Platform for step-by-step instructions.

    • Exchange Compliance Archiver Agent

    Wow, sweet. We're at the early stages of moving towards 2010, and was wondering how others were doing DR with it.

    I have question on exchange 2010


    – the standard instructions do not work as the media for HDPS is only for SP1 which doesn’t support exchange 2010, and won’t let me install the agent.

    Can I somehow update the install media with the latest patch and then install the exchange 2010 agents?

     Please advise

    I don't think this is going to be possible. You should be able to download the media via maintenance advantage. If not your account rep should be able to overnight them to you.

    The latest media with service pack 4 should do it.

    After logging into maintenance advantage, hit the downloads & packages link.  Click the link for Simpana 8.0 Additional Platform Support Packages.  You will see an Exchange 2010 agent installer package link.  Also, to quickly append to what Pat said, you can download from either the active OR passive node using update 17091 -


    3. Support backup from passive database copy of an Exchange 2010 DAG configuration.

    Set the following registry key value('Instance#' could be 'Instance001', 'Instance003', 'Instance003' and so on) on exchange server to enable backup from passive copy,
    Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CommVault Systems\Galaxy\Instance#\MSExchangeDBAgent
    Registry Key Value Name: DiscoverPassiveOnly
    Value type: DWORD(32 bit)
    Value: 1

    After setting this, exchange DB agent will only discover passive database copy on this server.

    This update is to enabled user backing up from ONE dedicated backup server which only have passive database copies. Backup one database from more than one DAG node may cause data loss.
