  • Windows Storage Server 2003 + Exchange???

    Hi,

    I have heard that the Storage Server OS is locked down to disallow the installation of MS Exchange System Manager.

    Any ideas?!

    Cheers.

    may be true, i am not sure about that.

    there are some articles about it though:
    Exchange 2003 and Windows Storage Server

    here is the home page for WSS 2003:
    Windows Storage Server 2003 R2

    i did see one item in the FAQ that may pertain to this:
    Q. Can Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) or Systems Management Server (SMS) components be run on Windows Storage Server 2003 R2 devices?

    A. Any agent that can be run on Windows Server 2003 can be run on Windows Storage Server 2003 R2 (CA Unicenter, MOM, SMS, Tivoli, OpenView, etc.).

      thanks for the reply.
      Have a client who wants to run some exchange archiving s/w.
      With the servers available, the Storage Server wa sa good candidate - 1/5tb available storage.

        to back exchange up TO the storage server the better idea would be to push the backup data onto it, not pull it from the server
