Veritas: How to restore brick level?

I'm having an issue trying to restore from a brick level backup. I use Veritas and Exchange 2003

After successfull backup I go to restore and get error: Unable to attach to a resource.

So basically it doesent even start. I tested a full information store backup (normal) and it worked fine so I know I don't have hardware errors or an issue with the data not being there.

Is the process different in Veritas for restoring brick level mailboxes?

Please help. THANKS for reading!

What version of Backup Exec are you running?  Are you doing disk or tape backups?

You also want to make sure that you're using brick level backups, depending on version of Backup Exec there are different ways to set it up

Without knowing the version try this, it gives some general fixes

Thanks I will read the link

We are using Tape Backups with all the patches.

We are backing up individual mailboxes as well as the stores in the "Information store" so I know the "mailboxes" with all the individual mailboxes are infact the bricks. If thats how you say it.

I think it's important to mention that I am recovering to an offline recovery server. But remember that I can do a full  non brick restore via Offline Recovery Server as well as brick and non brick backups with no issues.

For some reason it only fails on Brick Restores.

I will read your link

The link assumes a bad password but I am able to test successfull on all stores and proved so by doing normal full restores and brick/full backups. I think this is sepcific to brick level restores to an offline server. I wonder if Veritas doesent support it?

Are you restoring the whole server or just the mailboxes to a server with a different servername?

Just one mailbox to an offline server with a different servername

So yes the servername is different but normal restores worked fine. I tried it with and without an RSG group on the recovery server.

What do you mean by "an offline server"? For Exchange Mailbox restores it is necessary that the Information Store on your destination server is up and running. So, make sure that is the case.

The account you use to restore also needs to be an Exchange Full administrator on the destination Exchange server. The account should also NOT be hidden from the Global Address List.

Offline Recovery Server means it's not joined to the domain. It's in it's own forest on the network. Normal restores work but brick level restores do not.

I'm going to try it on the live system to see if that works.
