    Morning all,

    I know this isn’t a Exchange 2000 question but thought I would post it anyway if someone can help at all.

    We have a exchange 5.5 machine running on a windows 2000 server and a mailbox was deleted by accident but have a full tape backup etc. We used Veritas 8.6 to backup the mailboxes but I am having a problem restoring the mailbox. I have re created the users mailbox in exchange the way it was and when I try to restore I am getting access denied messages.

    I have tried re directing the restore to a new temp mailbox but that also fails.

    Has anyone got anything that could help me?

    Thanks,
    Si

    No RSG in 5.5 so I think the only way is to build a totally new Exchange organisation and restore there

    You could have a look at OnTrack’s PowerControls — expensive but worth it — there is a “read only” demo version to try before you buy

    But why are you still using a product that must be approaching 15 years old and is 5 versions behind the current one?

    Hi,

    I have managed to restore it ok.

    There was a missing file that is used to restore mailboxes. It was Esebcli2.dll copied this file into the bin directory and created a reg key for it and boom it’s now restoring the mailbox!

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/275676 i know it says for 2000 but it was missing for my 5.5 install.

    Thanks for your advice!

    Si
