I had to setup a Recovery Storage group in Exchange 2003 as a user lost plenty of email from Inbox in archive problem. I use backupexec 11d and copied procedures from here http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/264815.htm
except for point 3 Ton how to restore Exchange 2003 databases using the Recovery Storage Group as I was restoring database to same exchange server.
I restored database from tape backup to E:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\First Storage Group and it is correct. When I run exmerge using the two step procedure, all I want is to extract to pst file, and select the recovery storage group I get error to say that exmerge can't access list of mailboxes on the database. I have attached log file as well.
When I try thie same procedure on the First Information Store it does see the mailboxes and I am using same admin account for both. I have checked permissions on recovery storage group using ADSIedit and admin as send and receive as allow first beofre deny send and recive.
Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?
