Restoring Single Mailbox

StarfishTech asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hello,  we need to restore a single mailbox from our exchange 2003 backups. Here is the scenario - we migrated from an exchange 2003 server to an exchange 2010 server. SHortly after the migration, someone deleted a mailbox on the 2010 server. Now we need that mailbox back. The old 2003 server is still intact and hasn't been decommissioned yet. It has been several months since the mailbox was deleted but we do have Backup Execbackups of the information store. To make a long story short, we can't restore the mailbox directly to the old exchange 2003 server via the granular restore. Symantec is telling us that the server keeps dropping the netowrk connection when we try to restore. Do we have any other options here? We have successfully restored the EDB and STM files.....we just don;t know what we can do with them. We've already tried forklifting them to a test exchange box that we have been the database won't mount.
