Netbackup Restore of Microsoft Exchange 2003 Enterprise from Tape (Original Exchange Server no Longer Exists)

I have a client with a big problem. They need to restore a mailbox from an Exchange 2003 Enterprise server that no longer exists, and the backup is only a storage group backup via Netbackup to tape, so a full bare metal restore is not possible.

They currently have upgraded to an Exchange 2007 Enterprise environment.

- Is there anyway of mounting/accessing an Exchange storage group backup in Netbackup without actually having the original Exchange 2003 server.

- Can I use Netbackup to restore an Exchange 2003 Storage group to the Recovery Storage group in the current Exchange 2007 server?

- Worst case scenario, can I build a new DC on a new AD forest (different forest name: newADForest.local, different subnet), and add an Exchange Enterprise server with the same Netbios name (origExchSvr.newADForest.local) and storage group name, and then restore from tape to this new server?

It is possible by setting up a DR environment same like your previous exchange server 2003 environment ( you can have AD and exchange server 2003 server only) and restore the mailbox database to the respective storage group

Can I use Netbackup to restore an Exchange 2003 Storage group to the Recovery Storage group in the current Exchange 2007 server?

Netapp wont support this type of restore

Worst case scenario, can I build a new DC on a new AD forest (different forest name: newADForest.local, different subnet), and add an Exchange Enterprise server with the same Netbios name (origExchSvr.newADForest.local) and storage group name, and then restore from tape to this new server?

This will be only option available with you now...
