Agent Properties (AD Server)

Use this dialog box to specify one or more Active Directory (AD) servers (i.e., domain controllers) that host an Exchange Server. Specifying additional AD Servers provides complete backup coverage of all Exchange mailboxes.

AD Server List

Displays the domain name of one or more Active Directory (AD) servers.  You can use this space along with the Add and Delete buttons to include or remove Active Directory (AD) servers. For example, you may need to add an AD server in these scenarios:

  • In cases where an Exchange Server is installed in a child domain and the schema master is in the parent domain, add the Active Directory (AD) server name of the schema master in the parent domain.
  • In cases where a domain or forest has multiple domain controllers which may not fully replicate to each other, multiple domain controllers can be added to ensure a complete list of mailboxes are backed up.


Click to include an Active Directory (AD) server. Enter either a hostname, a fully-qualified domain name, or IP address.
