Hi there. I am trying to recover a my public folder server to an off-line recovery server as one of our users has deleted something crtical in the public server. In our enterprise I have 2 mailstores on their separate server (which only has mailboexes) and their associated public folder server is in its own separate server
I have successfully been able to restore the public folder server to the offline recovery server. Now this off line public folder server has all the data, but does not have the associated mailboxes which these correspond to (as they reside on a separate server in our live environment). As a result, in my recovery server, I have no permission to view or extract the data I am after and when I go the Folders directory in ESM and try and change the client permsions so that I the administrator can atleast extract the info via outlook, I get an error (see url). In the outlook view I can not see the folder that I am after,whereas I can on the Folders list
FYI on my recovery server (and live server) in ESM for the public folder server, I have the First Storage Group
Below that I have the Mailbox Store (which ofcourse doesnt have any mailboxes in it as they are on a separate server)
Below that I have Public folder store (with all the data)
So my question is that will I need to restore the associated mailboxes in my recovery environment to get the data. Is there no way I can extract this data, without having to have another recovery server invloved?
Would be great to hear from someone who has had to go through this proceedure
