New BMC Software Solutions Deliver Monitoring, Management, Recovery and
Scheduling for the Microsoft Exchange Environment

ORLANDO, MEC 2001 - (Oct. 2, 2001) - BMC Software, Inc. [NYSE: BMC], a
leading provider of enterprise management, today announced that it is
delivering support for Microsoft Exchange across the enterprise, thereby
Assuring Business Availability(r) for customers utilizing Microsoft Exchange
as their mission-critical mail server. By delivering new management
solutions for Microsoft Exchange Server, BMC Software provides customers
with new efficiencies in the overall monitoring, management, recovery and
security of Microsoft Exchange.

Enterprise-wide support for Microsoft Exchange is another step in BMC
Software's mission of Assuring Business Availability for its customers by
delivering the infrastructure and service management solutions that manage
and monitor mission-critical applications, databases, and e-business
solutions. BMC Software supports Exchange across the enterprise with the
following solutions: PATROL(r) Recovery for Microsoft Exchange Server,
PATROL for Microsoft Exchange Servers and CONTROL-SA(r) so that customers
can be assured that their mail and messaging applications are optimized to
enhance business productivity and effective communication.

"In today's global business environment, email is the backbone of crucial
communications, directly impacting a company's bottom line," said Kevin
McCuistion, Exchange group product manager at Microsoft Corp. "BMC works
closely with us to create solutions that provide monitoring, management,
recovery and scheduling for our customers' mission-critical Exchange
environments delivering high availability and performance where our
customers need it most."

PATROL Recovery for Microsoft Exchange Server, with expected availability at
the end of October, is designed to effectively execute, monitor and manage
Microsoft Exchange 2000 backups and recoveries. Whether a customer needs
to create, start, or cancel recovery tasks, determine the location of where
backup data is stored, or recover multiple Exchange Server Stores and
Databases across an enterprise, PATROL Recovery for Microsoft Exchange
Server provides the flexibility to execute reliable, timesaving and
automated backups and recoveries, as business needs demand.

Other features of PATROL Recovery for Microsoft Exchange Server include:

* Automatic discovery of servers and centralized administration and
management from a unified console,

* Ability to manage where and how users want their Exchange data backup to
be routed,

* Easy implementation with task wizards to guide users through the backup
and recovery process,

* Compression and backup expiration support, and

* Ability to search for previously executed tasks and copy them to other
servers to store for execution.

"NetLuminous' portfolio of e-support services relieves the burden companies
face when building, deploying and maintaining mission-critical and
application infrastructure," said Glen Ceniza, CTO, NetLuminous. "Exchange
is critical to our support of our customers, which is why we use PATROL to
manage it, thus ensuring the highest level of availability and performance."

PATROL for Microsoft Exchange Servers delivers comprehensive management and
assures the availability and performance of all Exchange messaging servers
in a customer's environment. This solution monitors connections between all
of the mail servers as well as monitoring end-to-end message arrival and
return time ensuring that messages travel successfully and efficiently.

PATROL for Microsoft Exchange Server provides Intelligent Availability, the
use of automated out-of-the-box recovery actions, which automatically fixes
problems that might otherwise cause a decrease in the Exchange servers'

CONTROL-SA by BMC Software centralizes management of users, resource access
and security policies through a dedicated security data repository and GUI.
It provides Microsoft Exchange administrators with a complete view of each
user's access privileges. CONTROL-SA enforces large-scale security
operations by consolidating multiple identity stores in order to provide an
enterprise-wide Identity Management System. All of this while introducing
role-based management to simplify and automate creating, setting up and
revoking user access rights across a Microsoft Exchange environment, as well
as supporting other platforms and applications.
