  • Exchange 2003 restore info

    Hello all!

    I have a exchange 2003 server(sp1) that I restored from a 4 week old ESX Ranger backup. It funcntions fine but now I would like to restore the more current info from the latest tape backup using Backup Exec 12.0 (sp1). What do I restore and is there any specific order I should follow or do it all at once?

    1. system state
    2. Information store
    3. C drive
    4. etc, etc

    Thank you!

    Is the server working ok now? Aside from the currently lost data is everyone up and running?
    If so then I would recommend setting up the recovery storage group and recovering the database that way.

    Plus, there is no reason to be running SP1 nowadays, SP2 has been out for a long time.
    cheers

              Reading some of the documentation I notice this won't work for the Public Folder. Any pointers on the restore ofthe Public Folder?

              Thanks again!

                No just mailboxes.
                There is some info here.
                http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...EXCHG.65).aspx

                Just for info this is a good starting point;
                http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...EXCHG.65).aspx

                I would wait for some input from others first to see what their thoughts are today though.

                  Restore recovery Groups are great! Worked very well. I am not going to worry about the public folder now, as it doesn't have alot of info init anyway. Thanks!
