I have a production server that is a Domain controller and and Exchange 2003 Server. I used ntbackup to do a full backup. I have built another machine off the network. I want to just restore the public folders for dev and testing purposes. I have named the new machine the same, added the AD with the same names, installed exchange 2003 with the same names and service packs. I go to restore the ntbackup file selecting just the Public Folder store and I get this Event error

1. Event ID 904 Source ESE Backup
Information Store (3516) Callback function call ErrESECBRestoreGetDestination ended with error 0xC7FE1F41 Database is in use.

I have looked at this event on the web, but it always refers to mailbox stores and recovery groups which are not an option for me with Public Folders.

Thanks.

Hi,

did you set the "Database can be overwritten by restore" checkbox on the database via ESM > Database Properties > Database tab? You should then also dismount the store.

I did set the overwrite but was not dismounting the store. I am trying this right now.

The public Store will not Mount after restore finished. I am rebooting right now and I will put together the event log errors.

FYI

I have the original pub.edb and pub.stm files if this makes things simpler than an NTbackup restore....
