    Windows Server Backup - How do you register applicatitions e.g.Exchange??

    I want to go through the restoration process of Exchange date - the
    entire database, individual mailboxes, emails etc.

    My lab setup is as follows (all in a vmware machine):-

    Windows Server 2008
    Exchange 2007 (32-bit/sp1/eval)

    Email flow etc works fine.

    I've taken a full backup using windows server backup.


    When I come to restore the backup in the Select recovery type screen
    the option for Applications is greyed out. It says that you can
    recover applications that have registered with Windows Server Backup.

    I need to find out how to get Exchange to register with Windows Server
    Backup. Again this is all for testing purposes - on my SBS 2008
    production DC the options are all present. I want to do this in my lab
    simply for testing/practice purposes.

    Can anyone advise me on how to do this?

    Thanks

    Are you quite sure that answers my question? To register Exchange
    2007 with Server Backup you install Exchange Server with /
    disasterrecovery? doesn't sound right to me.

    So, you're trying to restore Exchange 2007 64-bit (from SBS) to Exchange
    2007 32-bit on Windows 2008 32-bit hardware?

    Thanks Leonid I'll check that link out.

    Merv - no I've got Server 2008 set up as a DC running under VMware,
    with Exchange 2007 SP2 - purely a lab/testing environment. I want to
    go through the actual routine of restoring individual emails,
    mailboxes etc etc. For this I chose the 32-bit eval copy.

    All I need to find out is how to register Exchange 2007 SP2 with
    Server Backup 2008 on a standard 2008 server.

    Leonid - that link you posted doesn't actually say HOW to register
    Exchange with Windows Server Backup.

    I'm still stumped.

    I've just double checked on my lab setup and it doesnt look like
    Exchange SP2 installed properly - it's still showing as SP1. I'll
    reinstall SP2 and re-check the backup options.
