Backup Veritas 12 GRT?

Just wondering if there is a special license to use the new GRT feature for Exchange or specific settings and environment requirements to use this feature?

I currently use Backup Exec 12 and tape backups and have successfully restored a full Information Store from backup but when choosing an individual mailbox I keep getting random errors. They mostly say hardware errors and shut my devices down but it's a false positive and just turn the devices back online with no issues.

Has anybody used the GRT feature and is it suppose to be as simple as a full restore?

Symantec introduced the GRT with Backup Exec 11 .
It works fine and millions of users are using the new technology,

GRT or the GRANULAR RESTORE TECHNOLOGY allows you to perform backup of Information Store with the functionality to restore individual items.
It DOES NOT REQUIRE a separate license for Exchange

for more information please refer to  the ADMIN guide and the following links

Read the Admin Guide. Thanks.

I found out that because we are using tape backups, we cannot use the GRT method without it downloading the entire database (40-50Gigs) to the Veritas backup server (staging area). Therefore, mailbox or brick level backups are still king when using tape backups/restore unfortunately ugh.

As far as my issue listed above. The problem was with Exchange. I did a reinstall of Exchange and it happend to work fine and then found out that it copies the entire database.

Thanks a bunch
