  • restore exchange backup from non exchange server

    Used Petri info to set a non exchange server to backup the information store as an xtra backup option. How would I restore the information store to the exchange server on the sbs machine from the non exchange member servers backup?

    You may be able to do this if you have ESM installed on that member server. Is there any particular reason why you don't want to perform the restore locally on the SBS server though? Unless your backup is to tape and you don't have a suitable drive in the SBS server, I would advise you to perform the restore on the SBS server itself. The BKF file can be accessed via a UNC if necessary.

          I believe the article he is referring to is this one here - http://www.petri.com/backup_exchange...nge_server.htm

          James, is that the guide you followed?
