I can't seem to be able to restore my Exchange 2003 database from a 2 yr old backup. I receive various errors in the application event log including one titled ESE BACKUP, the description is:

Information Store (4356) Callback function call
ErrESECBRestoreGetDestination ended with error 0xC7FE1F41 Database is in use.

I then turn off the Exchange Information Store service and I get a new set of errors involving MAPI and monitoring. Some of them obviously stating that the information store is not running.

I hate the stupid MS backup/restore utility, and I hate proprietary database technology even more. Someone please help.

Thanks

Did you unmount information store before running restore from backup?

You're restoring a 2-year old backup?  You must also hate backing up your data.  :-)
