Hi,

we are using exchange server 2007 installed in windows 2008 servers. We are using symantec vault 9.0.1 to archive our exchange mails. Also to backup vault we are using symantec 2010 R2 with vault agent. Backup is working fine. Now our management asked to do a restore test. I din't find any document that discribs the same. Pls let me know what and all things I need to take care.
Below are some doubts:

For example. I am taking weekly vault backup., but archiving is happening daily. So If I restore last week vault backup, will it delete (rewrite) the recent days archive mails.

Pls send me document if any.

thanks and Regds

The only way to do a restore is a full vault which typically involves restoring the vault and sql database to the same time period.  

The way I have done this in the past is to use a virtualized environment and to perform a "failover" which means that I restored all the SQL DBs to a different Server as well as vaults and indexes. I then used failover procedures to perform a restore.

Another option may be to create a test vault and archive test users.  From there you can delete and restore the temp vault...just a thought.

The issue here is tha this is production so it's all or none on the index/vault/sql db.  This is why I tend to use a test vault, otherwise you're overwriting production data without recourse

Hi,

I restored successfully. The steps are as below:

1. Restore Enterprise vault DB
2. Then restore Vault partition (this will restore all the archive mails back, but it won't create short cuts)
3. Export the users archived mails into PST (select delete mails from vault after export)
4. Import again from the same PST. It will create all the short cuts.

Thanks
