Installing the plug-in in standalone and LCR deployments

Access the NetVault Configuration Wizard or Manage Clients page.
To access the NetVault Configuration Wizard page:
In the Navigation pane, click Guided Configuration.
On the NetVault Configuration Wizard page, click Install Plugins.
To access the Manage Clients page:
On the Manage Clients page, select the machine that contains the Exchange Server, and click Manage.
On the View Client page, click the Install Plugin button ().
Click Choose Plug-in File, navigate to the location of the “.npk” installation file for the plug-in (on the installation CD or the directory to which the file was downloaded from the website).
Select the file entitled “exs-x-x-x-x.npk” (where xxxx represents the version number), and click Open.

Installing the plug-in in high-availability deployments

As described in Single-location Database Availability Group (DAG), creating the Virtual Client for managing the DAG installs the Plug‑in for Exchange on each node included in the cluster. During this process, verify that the NetVault Backup Client is installed on each node and that each NetVault Backup Client is added to the Virtual Client that you create for the DAG. This process ensures that the applicable databases are not excluded from the backup process.
The Virtual Client creation process is not plug-in-specific, and you can find complete details in the topic dedicated to cluster functionality in the Dell NetVault Backup Administrator’s Guide. However, consider the following points during the Virtual Client creation process:
Only include relevant cluster nodes in the Virtual Client: The hosts that are to be included in the creation of a Virtual Client should only be those nodes or Exchange Mailbox Servers that make up the DAG, SCC, or CCR deployment. During the creation of the Virtual Client, you can specify either the IP address of the Exchange virtual cluster or the name of the Exchange virtual cluster. After the creation of the Virtual Client, the plug-in is transferred to all designated cluster nodes and installed locally. The installed Plug‑in for Exchange can be used through the Virtual Client to back up and restore the DAG, SCC, or CCR deployment.
Assign a name to the Virtual Client: Dell strongly recommends that the Virtual Server network name assigned to the Exchange Server be used as the NetVault Backup Virtual Client name. When a Virtual Client is browsed, NetVault Backup locates the node currently in control of the clustered application, and reveal the Exchange Server Instance. With a Virtual Client name set up as the Exchange Server Virtual Server network name, it is easier to recognize the Exchange Server Instance for which the Virtual Client was created.

Removing the plug-in

On the Manage Clients page, select the applicable client, and click Manage.
In the Installed Software table on the View Client page, select Plug‑in for Exchange, and click the Remove Plugin button ().
In the Confirm dialog box, click Remove.
