How to use Symantec BE 11d to restore Exchange to a Recovery Storage Group
Posted on 2009-04-28
I'm trying to restore my Information Store from my March Month end tape to a RSG. I keep getting error access denied. I have followed a number of different posts from this site as well as MS and Symantec. All to no avail. I have added and re-added the RSG in exchange. I have also attempted a number of different restores with different restore options.
It is my understanding that when a RSG is created, by default the Exchange Restore will restore to this group. There is no reason that this should be this difficult.
Here is my setup.
SBS2k3 R2 current on patches and SP.
Symantec BE11d SP3 Hotfix 52.
LTO2 Tape drive.
External USB drive for RSG location.
I'm restoring to the original server location for the mailbox store so I should not need to redirect it. Thought I have tried this option with no success. It runs approximately 35 min then failes with access denied. V-79-57344-33928.
Restore \\<server>\Microsoft Information Store\First Storage Group
Access denied to the database Mailbox Store (<server>)
Error writing file data.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
