Organization configuration

This section lists the steps needed to configure an Exchange organization for backup.

Before you configure an Exchange organization, make sure that you satisfy the prerequisites listed below.

Prerequisites:

  • If you plan to install the product in a system running Windows 7 SP1 or Windows Server 2008, ensure you have Microsoft .NET version 4 and PowerShell version 2 installed in the system.
    • To check if Microsoft .NET Framework is installed, open Command Prompt from Run. Enter the following command reg query
      "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\full" /v version
      Check the displayed version. If the version is below 4 or if it’s not installed, install Microsoft .NET Framework 4 from here.

    • To check if PowerShell is installed, type PowerShell from Run. If PowerShell is installed, check for its version number by running the command $PSVersionTable.

      If the version is below 2 or if it’s not installed, install PowerShell V 2.0 from here.
