We have Exchange 2010 in a DAG.  We have 1 user who somehow (dont ask) deleted her Calendar items - All of them!  We are trying to restore from a Networker Backup but it errors with

"Entered Server is not having CAS role installed.  Please Enter the Client Access Server (CAS) to browse mail items in RDB.   To My knowledge I do not think we have Recovery Database setup.  What I read say you need the CAS role enabled as well as Mailbox Server role.  Is it safe to do this on my Mailbox server?  Is there anything else needed?  We were able to create a recovery DB for this mailbox.  Were now looking to just Mount the Recovery DB and pull out the Calendar but unsure how to do this.,

First you need to create a recover db using EMS on you MBX server into an alternate drive.

Once created restore the data from backup and then export it to PST, extract user calendar data again into one more pst and merge it into user calendar folder.

Ok I created a recovery DB following the instructions on link you sent.  Now how to restore data from backup and export to PST??

We already restored the data to a drive on Exchange MBX Server.  The folder is called Recovery DB and under it it shows as a EDB file.  Ive never done this ebfore so Im a little confused.

Thansk for all your help!
