Re: Exchange Server 2016 backup "Unable to browse instance 12:8102"

Hello

Please be sure that you are using account with necessary rights

Configuring user accounts
Windows domain user account for backup and restore sessions
Backup and restore sessions are started by the Data Protector Inet service, which by default runs
under the Windows local user account
SYSTEM. Consequently, a backup or restore session is
performed using the same user account.
However, you can specify that the
Data Protector Inet service should use a different Windows
domain user account to start a session:
l To perform a backup session under a different user account, specify the Specify OS user option
(see
"Specifying view type" on page 272) when creating a backup specification.
l To perform a restore session under a different user account, specify the User name and
Group/Domain name options in the Options page (see "Restore options" on page 294).
Before you specify a different Windows domain user account, configure the user account as follows:
1. Grant the user appropriate permissions to back up and restore Microsoft Exchange Server
databases.

2. Add the user to the Data Protector admin or operator user group. For details on adding users, see
the
HPE Data Protector Help index: ”adding users”.
3. Save the user and its password to a Windows Registry on the Microsoft Exchange Server system
on which you plan to start the integration agent (
e2010_bar.exe). To save the user account, use
the Data Protector
omniinetpasswd or omnicc command.
Note: The user account saved in the Windows Registry will be used by the Data Protector
Inet
service when needed.
For details on setting accounts for the Inet service user impersonation, see the
HPE Data
Protector Help
index: “Inet user impersonation”.
Example
To save the user jane from the domain HPE and with the password mysecret to a Windows
Registry, log on to the Microsoft Exchange Server system and execute the following command:
omniinetpasswd –add jane@HPE mysecret

Re: Exchange Server 2016 backup "Unable to browse instance 12:8102"

Hello @Anuj,

Please check the c:\program data\omniback\tmp directory on the Exchange Server where you have executed the command in debug mode.

Re: Exchange Server 2016 backup "Unable to browse instance 12:8102"

Hi Koehler

Thanks for reply

I have checked the c:\program data\omniback\tmp directory on the Exchange Server but there is no file other than "CRS.pid"

I am using Exchange Management Shell to run the command. I want to know also how run command in debug mode. Please check the attached screen shot.

How can I solve this issue so I could take the Exchange server 2016 backup using Data protector A.10.00 ?

Thanks

Re: Exchange Server 2016 backup "Unable to browse instance 12:8102"

Hi @Anuj,

CRS.pid is a trace of the Cell Manager. Does this mean you have installed the Cell Manager on the Exchange Server? This does not look right. On the Exchange System you will need at least the Disk Agent, Exchange 2010+ and the Volume Shadow Integration. Also install the old .NET Framework accroding to the prerequesites.

Running the command from an elevated command prompt or Powershell works well on my system.

Re: Exchange Server 2016 backup "Unable to browse instance 12:8102"

Hello @Anuj,

Is this Exchange Server the only client you want to backup with Data Protector? If not, then you should better install the Cell Manager on a external backup server and just use the Data Protector client on the Exchange host.

Since this seems to be a fresh instalation I would recommend using Data Protector A.10.03 to make sure we do not face any possible bugs that have been fixed in the meantime. I don't understand why no debug files are created, but most likely the agent is just crashing. So please use the latest version and let us know if it works.

You can try to emable the Specify OS user checkbox and enter the name of a administrative user and group having rights to backup Exchange (below the error in your screenshot).

Sebastian Koehler

Re: Exchange Server 2016 backup "Unable to browse instance 12:8102"

Hi @Anuj,

This is strange. I'm wondering that you use Administrator and WORKGROUP as an administrative account. This system is part of an active directory domain, right?

Please use an domain user with apropirate rights here. Also make sure the same user is added to INET impersonation as @JBasilio mentioned it. You an see it by running omniinetpasswd -list and add it using omniinetpasswd -add USER@DOMAIN from an administrative command prompt.

Are those commands work fine if you login as this USER@DOMAIN from an administrative PowerShell?

Get-MailboxDatabase
Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus -Identity 'YourMailboxDB1'
Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus -Identity 'YourMailboxDB2'
Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus -Identity 'YourMailboxDBn'
Get-PublicFolderDatabase
Get-PublicFolder -Recurse

Can you please check if the Data Protector INET service is running as LOCAL SYSTEM?

Regards,
Sebastian Koehler

Hi @Anuj,

Before we go any further, we need to go back to the beginning. Here is something totally wrong.

How many Windows servers do you have that need to be backed up with Data Protector? Is there a dedicated backup server for the Cell Manager or do you plan to install the Cell Manager as the only client on the Exchange server (ex16r.exch16.local). According to your screenshots the following services must be listed. If not, you're looking at the wrong console. Does the command omnisv status work on the system?
