Sure it's possible. The cheapest way to do it (no additional
software to buy) is to install the Exchange Administrator components on
another NT machine. Installing the administrative components updates the
NTBACKUP program on that machine to allow it to back up Exchange servers
without having to stop the Exchange services (a BAD idea). KB article
Q181445, "XADM: Files Needed to Perform Exchange NT Backup on Workstation",
describes the minimum files needed to make NTBACKUP Exchange-aware.
