Getting Started with the Exchange Database Application

To get started with the Exchange Database application, install the Commvault package, complete the Core Setup Wizard, and then perform the first backup operation and restore operation.

Step 1: Install the Commvault Package

If your backup administrator has not already installed the Commvault package, then you must install it.

For more information, see Installing the Commvault Package.

Step 2: Obtain Your User Credentials

Obtain the following information from your backup administrator:

  • The Admin Console URL
  • Your Admin Console user credentials

Step 3: Log On to the Admin Console

Access the Admin Console by using the URL that was displayed on the installation completion page, or that you received from your backup administrator.

Step 4: Complete the Core Setup Wizard and Register the Admin Console

Configure core information by completing the Core Setup Wizard. You can also register the Admin Console.

Step 5: Prepare for the First Backup Operation and Restore Operation

  1. Configure a storage target.
  2. Create a server plan.
  3. Create an Exchange DAG client.
  4. Assign content to the default subclient.
  5. Configure manual or automatic selection of the backup source for the default subclient.

Step 6: Run the First Backup Operation and Restore Operation

Step 7: What to Do Next

To back up specific databases, or for content that you need to back up on a separate schedule, create user-defined subclients.
