Restore Public Folders from Veritas Backup Exec

Hi,

I need help restoring a backup of the public folder store with veritas backup exec to a new exchange server in a different domain.

The old domain/server was a windows 2000 domain with Exchange 2000 the backup was created here.

The new domain is a windows 2003 domain with Exchange 2003. I managed to import all the mailboxes into the new domain with ExMerge.

I need to get the Public Folder store out of veritas and into the new server.

When I try to restore directly to the new server I get the error message in eventvwr that says
================================================
