We are running Exchange 2010 SP1 in a pre-prod environment. We have 20 DB's in the DAG, each with 5 copies - one of which is a lag copy of that DB. I am looking to perform a restore using the lagged copy.
I had some questions:
1. Is there a Powershell command I can run to find out what the lagged copy for a particular DB is and where it is located?
2. In the Technet article we are taking a VSS copy of the DB. Do we then run the commands on the VSS copy version of the actual lagged copy?
3. What is the difference between taking a VSS copy of the lag DB and simply copy and pasting to another location?
