About selecting a destination client for an Exchange restore operation
When you perform a restore of an Exchange backup, you can choose a different destination client to which you want to restore a backup. (This type of operation is called redirecting a restore to a different client.) Most of the Exchange objects that are backed up can be redirected to a different client. The Microsoft Exchange Information Store databases can be restored to a different Exchange server.
The following requirements must be met before you redirect the restore of databases:
You must have NetBackup server privileges or be logged into a server with the NetBackup Administration Console or the NetBackup Remote Administration Console.
The databases must exist on the target server.
If you initiate a redirected restore from a NetBackup client, the destination client must have permission to restore from the source client. See the NetBackup Administrator's Guide, Volume I for the configuration that is needed for a redirected restore.
The following situations require that the clients have the same version of Windows, as follows:
When you redirect a restore to a different client
When you select a destination client other than the source client when you browse the backup image
To provide the name of the destination client, select. If the client you want does not appear in the destination client list, you can add the client to the list.
If you want to perform a restore in a non-cluster environment to the original client that performed the backup, you do not need to change the destination client. In a cluster environment, you need to ensure that the destination client is virtual server name. It may not be possible to change the destination client value from a NetBackup client-only installation in a cluster. In that case, use the Backup, Archive, and Restore interface on a NetBackup server to change the destination client value to the virtual server name.
Select the destination client as described in Table: Destination client for an Exchange Server restore operation.
Table: Destination client for an Exchange Server restore operation
To restore to...
For the destination client, select...
another database in the same DAG
the same destination client as the source client. NetBackup redirects the restore to the server that hosts the active copy of the database.
another database in a different DAG
the DAG name where the target database exists. NetBackup redirects the restore to the server that hosts the active copy of the database.
an RDB in a DAG
the DAG name
an RDB on a standalone server
the name of the standalone server
the original client that performed the backup
you do not need to change the client
a different client
the client you want from the list. If necessary, first add the client name to the list.
a cluster environment
the virtual client name
a DAG node
the name of that node
a specific mailbox server
the name of that server
