Hey guys!

We have a mailbox that we would like to restore from backupexec. The thing is, that we have not enabled GRT on the backup for single mailbox restore.

What are our options now?

It's SBS 2003 running Backupexec 12.5

Thanks!

What are our options now? - Create a RSG and restore to it ... its a Corporate practice so no big deal with it and then Exmerge and get the data for that single mailbox

one option is

create a second Exchange server, create mailbox logged into it once, restore emails. Export them with exmerge for exchange and the attached them as a .pst for the user.

Thank you! It worked!
Just some notes:
For some reason it is not mentioned that after the restore from backup, I should mount the Mailbox Store, before proceeding with everything else.
Also, I got an error while mounting the store, so I had to run eseutil according to this KB:

We were able to export to pst individual mailboxes using ExMerge after that!

Maybe i missed on the doc as some docs do have a setting that explains in the BackupExec to check the box to Replay logs and Mount database afterwards to save you from all this doings
