I am running Backup Exec 11d, and I want to set it to restore certain backups to a different location on a specific schedule.  I basically want to be able to come in on a Monday, and verify the integrity of the backup without having to remotely log into the server over the weekend to set up the job.  How can I accomplish this?

This should work....

  • Click on Restore, to start a new job
  • Selections -->  Select Friday's Tap and this will be every Fridays tape...if you have Fri1, Fri2, Fri3, Fri4 this will not work.     You are restoring the data from this specific tape, as you would guess.
  • Destination --> File Redirect - so you can verify
  • Schedule -->  Set each Sunday Night or when ever so its ready Monday.   You can setup a email notification so you know its done.
Now the possible deal breaker here is Exchange...I would not want to redirect all email which can get messy or take down your server if you have Exchange 2003 Standard, example a 60GB Information Store, and you restore 60 GB more...the limit is 75GB.
