      I am confused if you restored the Ghost image of that exchange server on another machine you should not have to restore mail boxes....

        Basically, We took ghost image 4 days ago and now its been 4 days. So we've to resotre lastest backup on exchange. After restoring backup when we tried to mount storage its showed that "Storage is inconsistant"
        We are taking microsoft exchange server complete backup and trying to restore on original place.

          You are not supposed to backup Exchange in that way. No wonder it doesn't work.

          As for the question - you've been asked if there are any errors in the even log. Why didn't you answer? Do you expect us to read your computer's logs for you?
