Using cached mailboxes to update Exchange after crash
Posted on 2008-10-12
We just had an Exchange server crash and unfortunately the last good backup was in late September. However, most (jf not all) of the end users are on Outlook in cached mode.
Once the mailboxes are restored, will the cached mailboxes update Exchange, or will Exchange overwrite the cached mailboxes? Obviously the latter scenario would not be good as users would lose all of their email and calendar for the past few weeks.
I'm assuming Exchange will get updated by the cached mailboxes but I wanted to make sure before everything hits the fan tomorrow morning. Thanks!
