I am using NTBackup to backup and restore exchange 2007 in my lab however I am having issues doing a restore...using the toolbox, its showing a clean shutdown status...but when I do the restore from the RSG its showing corrupted items and unable to move...

Error restoring the mailbox (/O=ORG/OU=EXCHANGE ADMINISTRATIVE GROUP (123)/CN=RECIPIENTS/CN=JohnDoe). Error message is: Error was found for John Doe (JohnDoe@test.local) because: Error occurred in the step: Moving messages. This mailbox exceeded the maximum number of corrupted items specified for this move mailbox operation., error code: -1056749110.

Mailbox (John Doe) has been restored successfully. Status Code: -1056749110. Status Message: Error occurred in the step: Moving messages. This mailbox exceeded the maximum number of corrupted items specified for this move mailbox operation.

Seems, more of corruption in the mailbox - you may want to export-mailbox to some other existing mailbox. Try opening the mailbox in OL and check out for those corruption.

Btw is this taking place with every user / specific one ??

I am still amazed how did this database got backed up in its first place. If DB was in a corrupted state, it is normal that a normal check sum test would fail and backup would fail inevitably.

Instead of running eseutil - why not work with isinteg and get through the -fix test.

Eseutil could be used as a last option not first.

no joy still...did a full backup via ntbackup, mounted an RSG, mounted DB, allowed overwrite, and still issues...

the ISINTEG found a few issues and corrected them

Seems, either corruption level is way too high or Exchange is behaving dumb.

Let me check something quickly - if you're in a hurry you may run a hard repair - il post my finding in some time.

I consulted few of my MSFT colleagues - they too are amazed at this issue when i discussed with them, they also suggested working with repair - however, suggested to take another backup once the repair is over and merge is done.

Repair didnt work either, isinteg -test alltests didnt showanything either...so I decided to create a new database and moved a few users over...did not recieve any errors on relocation...I was able to backup and recover it perfectly...just going to perfrom some more test restores...I am wondering what the heck happened...wonder if was the backup util I was testing, Iron Mountain's live vault, couldnt do a successful restore so I went back to flat file
