  • Restore mail backup from Enterprise in SBS

    Question about restores of various versions.

    When I make backups of an Exchange 2003 Enterprise storage group with 4 stores, I make the backups with NTBACKUP, described by Petri, is it possible to restore that backup in an SBS 2003 server ?

    Exchange in SBS is standard version and, as such, only supports one store. So the short answer is "no"!
    TIA

      Thnx.
      Too bad.
      Okay, so when I go to the Exchange Enterprise server, move all mailboxes to 1 store, remove al other stores and storage groups, make a backup with NTBACKUP, can I restore that on an SBS 2003 server ?

        What are you trying to do? I feel we are missing some vital piece of background information

        If it is just to export from one server and into another, use EXMERGE

          Sorry, Ossian, I'm with ASS-ware.
          If I can, I avoid ExMerge and only use it as a last resort. It is the server equivalent of storing all your mail in PSTs! It doen;t transfer public folders, views, permissions, single instance storage etc.
          No, if ASS-Ware can fit everything into a single store AND it is less that 75GB, of course, then he can probably restore it to the SBS.
          TIA

            Uhm, well, seems obvious to me, make a backup of an Exchange 2003 Enterprise server and restore the mailboxes in an SBS 2003 server.

              Will give it a try as soon as I receive the software.
              Thank you all.
