Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

We think it's because we have a public folder in the storage group.  According to microsoft we cannot restore to the RSG if it it contains a public folder.
"•You can only recover mailbox stores to a Recovery Storage Group. You cannot restore a public folder store to a Recovery Storage Group because that action is not supported. The methods that you use to recover a public folder store in Exchange Server 2003 are the same methods that you use in Exchange 2000 Server. "

I cannot restore to EDB.  I can only restore to RSG or a replica exchange server.  When you use the Backup Exec exchange agent you backup the water, not the jug.

****UPDATE****  There is no public folder problem we just cannot find the database in the RSG find option.

The problem was related to the RSG being mapped in a alternate exchange server that was currently offline.
