Veritas Backup for Windows 8.6 restoring to seperate Exchange 5.5 Recovery Server

Veritas Backup for Windows 8.6 has the Exchange Backup option.  I can backup an Exchange 5.5 Information Store, but I can only restore to the same server.

Full backup on Exchange was run on Wed.  On Monday night the Exchange 5.5 Server crashed.  I rebuilt the server, but I can only restore the veritas backup information store to the same server, not the Exchange Server Recovery Server.  This would cause users to lose 4 days of emails which we don't want!

How can I use Veritas 8.6 to restore Exchange data to a Exchange Recovery Server?  Or do Veritas 9.0 add some restore capabilities?

May want to look at other backup options for Exchange...I spend most of my time restoring individual messages, but have use the CommVault product for Exchange updates/migration from 5.5. to 2003 with no issues.
