Backup Exec 12.5 Exchange 2007 GRT Restore fails
Posted on 2009-05-11
I have a strange issue with my newly installed Backup Exec 12.5.
I am backing up my Exchange 2007 Cluster with it and everything works fine for the backup part. I have GRT (Granular Recovery Technique) activated and the Backup finished successfully.
But now I try to restore only one folder from a mailbox on the backup. I am able to select the mailbox and even the single folders/mails in the Restore wizard and everything seems to be fine. But as soon as i try to run the job, it fails with the following error:
Final error: 0xe000848c - Unable to attach to a resource. Make sure that all selected resources exist and are online, and then try again.
Final error category: Resource Errors
I have tried running the restore from both my NAS as well as from a tape (we periodically move the NAS backups to the tape)
I even tried it with a backup that just finished this morning. I still get the same error telling me actually nothing. Since both my tape and disk device are online and perfectly working for the backup part.
I already installed "Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI Client and Collaboration Data Objects package" on both Mailbox Servers in the cluster.
When using the tape restore, it successfully "stages" the data into a temporary folder on the Backup machine, but just after that fails with the same error.
Any help much appreciated!
