BAC backup of Exchange Server

When doing a TSM file system backup of the Windows server that hosts Exchange, should I be excluding the folders that hold the Exchange DBs and Logs?
I use TDP for Exchange to backup the Exchange DBs nightly. It seems like backing them up with the TSM Backup/Archive client is redundant and unnecessary... possibly worthless if they can't backup everything if some logs are locked because they're in-use.
I'm just not sure if TDP for Exchange looks at the BAC dsm.opt file at all because it uses it as a proxy server.
Can anyone help answer this for me?

Yes. The Exchange DBs and Log should be excluded from being backed up via the TSM B/A Client.
NOTE: You can use the TSM B/A Client to backup the MS Exchange but the application need to be halted.
If the application need to be running 24X7X365, need to use the TDP to backup the MS Exchange.

No.
The TDP communicate with the TSM Server via the TSM API.
The TSM API have its own dsm.opt file.
