we have an sbs 2003 server - running exchange 2003 sp2 - it backs up using veritas backup exec version 10 (very old version) to a backup to disk folder on a nas drive.

We have installed sbs 2003 on a spare test server with no a blank configuration e.g we havnt setup as a domain etc as yet.

We want to restore 1 mailbox from the exchange 2003 backup.

The backup was set to backup exchange fully aswell as the individual mailboxes. We have allready tried to install Backup Exec 2012 (latest version) then catalog and run inventory on the nas drive so that we can see the backup sets but we have tried to restore even normal data it fails stating the data is inconsistent. We can see that the backups on the working server were sucessfull so we have now uninstalled backup exec 2012 on the spare test server and now installed backup exec version 10 .

The problem we are having now is how to catalog the backup to disk folder in order to be able to restore soem data from it.

We have tried this so far - running an inventory on the backup to disk folder so this was sucessfull and it can see the 200 + B2Dxxxxx files on the nas drive.

We need to now find out how we catalog this drive in order for us to restore from it?????

please advise guys

many thanks

Iy you have run the inventory of the B2D folder, then you should be able to select the found media and "Catalog media". Look into this Symantec support document at section 6.
