Problems restoring a Symantec backup to Exchange 2003 storage recovery group
I am using Symantec Backup Exec 2010 to backup my Exchange 2003 server. I created a Storage recovery group and my restores fail with the messasge.
Test Restore on Exchange 2/22/2011 -- The job failed with the following error: Unable to restore some Microsoft Exchange components because one or more of the databases are currently mounted, or because the recovery storage group or recovery database is not properly configured. Use the Exchange System Manager or Exchange Management Console to check the configuration of the recovery storage group or recovery database and the mount status of the databases.
The Exchange server does have the Symantec backup agent and does not seem to use the snapshot backup. The main Private folder is still mounted but the recovery is not.
