Recovering an Exchange database
To recover an Exchange database
- On an alternate or a repaired Exchange server, create databases that match the original databases.
You can use the Backup, Archive, and Restore interface on the master server to view the correct logical names of the databases or storage groups you want to recover.
- Mount and dismount each database store you want to restore.
This action creates the data files NetBackup requires for restore.
- Right-click the database store and click Properties.
- On the Database tab, click This database can be overwritten by a restore.
- Install the NetBackup client software on the alternate or the repaired Exchange server.
- On the master server, open the Backup, Archive, and Restore interface.
- Click File > Specify NetBackup Machines and Policy Type.
- In the Specify NetBackup Machines and Policy Type dialog box, specify the following:
Server to use for backups and restores
Select the NetBackup server that performed the backup.
Source client for restores
Select the client from which the backup was performed. For a clustered or DAG environment, this client is the virtual DAG name or the virtual cluster name.
Policy type for restores
Destination clients for restores
Select the client where you want to direct the restore. This client is either the alternate or the repaired Exchange server.
- Click OK.
- Restore the databases and transaction logs.
- Reconnect the mailboxes you recovered to their Active Directory user accounts.
- If you recovered to an alternate Exchange server, Veritas recommends you restore mailbox data from a backup that used Granular Recovery Technology (GRT).
You can also use a third party tool such as EXMerge to move individual items from an alternate database or an RDB.
See the Microsoft website for more information about EXMerge.
