Exchange Information Store Restore using Backup Exec
Posted on 2007-04-10
I have Symantec Backup Exec 10d running on a Windows 2003 DC, Exchange and SQL. I need to do a restore from 2 weeks ago, and I am not sure how to go about doing this. The way we backup is to backup the server to an external Hard Drive, and then take that BKF file and run another job to back that up to tape. I have restored the file off the tape to a directory named: F:\RESOTRE I have copied the 2 cfg files and the bkf file from the tape to this directory. Now what I don't know how to do is to restore from that bkf file. Also, what I am trying to restore is Exchange Information Store, and not replace the current information store. I just want a copy of the store so I can grab a users mailbox. Unfortunately I am not backing up individual mailboxes, so I need to get the store. How do I do this? Does anyone know?
Thanks in advance.
