Restoring database from old Exchange server
Posted on 2012-09-22
Our environment is Exchange 2007 SP2, Windows 2008, Netbackup 6.5 for Windows.
Earlier this year, we had Exchange servers in a lot of remote offices and we recently consolidated all the mailboxes back to regional hub sites. Part of this work was to clean up any unused mailboxes on the branch servers.
In Feb 2012, we had a branch named Branch1. There was a mailbox on there named John Doe (firstname.lastname@example.org). At the end of Feb, we moved all the mailboxes to HQ site (HQ1), we then uninstalled Exchange from Branch1. We moved over all the mailboxes for current users. John Doe was a mailbox we did not migrate to HQ.
We now need to restore John's mailbox. We have a backup taken at the end of Feb before we deleted the mailboxes remaining on Branch1 and uninstalled Exchange.
The problem is, how do we restore this to our HQ Exchange 2007 servers?
