Mailbox Recovery, MozyPro, SBS 2008, Exchange 2007
Posted on 2012-09-20
(1) Can MozyPro redirect a VSS restore to an alternate folder? I was asked to recover a single mailbox. My client asks that current Exchange services continue to run, and information stores must stay mounted. (The default instructions for MozyPro's VSS restore starts with dismounting the Information Stores, a bad sign.) Instead I want to restore VSS data from MozyPro for the purposes of creating a Recovery Storage Group in Exchange 2007 for SBS 2008 and simply merging one mailbox.
(2) From another angle, how do I test the VSS restore of MozyPro without putting the server at risk?
(3) Is there a light at the end of the tunnel of Jet errors? I've been through two lengthy restorations of this data already. I have the database .edb, and.log files, plus other scattered files. Data downloaded manually (not VSS) hasn't proved helpful. I downloaded via the regular Mozy restore process, but I may not have an accurate snapshot of Exchange logs. I can't repair with eseutil (eseutil /r E00). The best that I can say for my previous downloads of this data is that I can vary the eseutil errors by adding and subtracting different sets of logs, but I haven't found the magic set of logs that will complete the repair process.
(4) I spoke with four different MozyPro technicians. Has anyone been escalated higher?
