At my company The MS-Exchange plug-in is used to Backup our Exchange 2003 Information Store (Storage Group), and its Logs and Stores in the Information Store (Please do try to correct my terminology). This has never been tested, and we would like to do a test restore.
What do I need to do to restore a Information Store as a test, without overwriting or interrupting the current store?
The following from the manual makes me wonder if this is even possible:
Redirecting a Restore to a Different Path
A user can restore mailbox objects and Public folder objects to folders that are different from the folders from which the objects were backed up. Database objects should not be redirected to different paths.
Since the following is not set, I think we are not doing MailBox Level backups:
▼ To configure the mailbox for the NetBackup Client service account 1. Open the NetBackup Administration Console or the Remote Administration Console. 2. In the left pane, expand Host Properties. 3. Click Clients. 4. In the right pane, right-click on the client you wish to configure and choose Properties. 5. Expand Windows client and click Exchange. 6. In the Mailbox for message level backup and restore box, specify the mailbox. The mailbox may be specified as: ◆ An Exchange mailbox name ◆ A fully-qualified name ◆ /O=Org_Name/OU=Site_Name/CN=Server_Name/CN=Mailbox_Name
