    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”!

    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.

    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.
