Hello all ,

I want to restore a deleted mailbox from dpm. In our Exchange infrastructure we have a DAG with 2 MBX Servers. If am right i must create a recovery database and mount into a server so dpm can restore there the database . This recovery database must also be inside the DAG or it can only resist in a single mbx server?

You should only need to put the recovery mailbox on a single Exchange server, then migrate/restore the mailbox required over to a database within the DAG. The DAG will take care of replicating the mailbox to the other server(s) as required.

Hello ,

Any more efficient way for restoring a whole mailbox ? Because DPM has to restore a whote database (1.2TB) to take only a single mailbox.

DPM cannot directly recover mailbox, so you have to recover entire DB to recovery DB, and then recover mailbox.
Not a very fast solution, but it works.

We created a "recovery" database in DAG server

New-MailboxDatabase -Server <servername> -Name <recovery database name> -Recovery -EdbFilePath <directory restore from DPM>


Once restored from dpm completed.

New-MailboxRestoreRequest to merge the data from recovered database
