Restoring Exchange Backup and System State to another machine
Posted on 2008-10-30
My task is this:
I have a production Exchange 2003 / Server 2003 machine that I am taking regular backups on (both System state and Exchange Info store).
I'd like to restore these backups in my lab to a test Server periodically to test them.
I've been reading and it seems like I need to have *Exactly* the same hardware/software drivers/ etc.. on my Lab machine that I have on my production machine in order to make this work. Is that true?
My Lab machine is quite different from my production machine.
Thanks for your opinions.
