Exchange 2007 - Restore Mailbox from Recovery Storage Group

Posted on 2008-11-19
Last Modified: 2013-12-01
I am using Backup Exec 11d for backup and recovery. I successfully restored the database to the RSG in Exchange 2007. In PowerShell, I run the restore-mailbox command and receive this error after several minutes.

Restore-Mailbox: Error was found for <user> ( 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

At line:1 char:16
+ Restore-Mailbox <<<< -RSGDatabase "<servername>\Recovery Storage Group\<databasename>" -rsgmailbox "<user>" -TargetFolder <foldername>

    iamthecreator, after reading other posts...I did disable anti-virus. I also raised the max error limit but no cigar.

    most posts also state that this problem occurs when moving mailboxes, but I am only trying to restore to RSG...any ideas?

    You could have reviewed the log:
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Logging\MigrationLogs\restore-Mailbox987132487-9873498234.log (numbers are just made up!  :) )
    Count the number of bad items, and raise your -BadItemCount above it.  It will also show you where the corrupt data is.
    Mind you, restoring corrupt data might be a bad idea!  But whatever works in DR.

    You have to use -BadItemLimit.

    Additiaonal check the max. mailbox size
