Exchange 2010 - Recovery DB and Steps to Merge Calendar Data RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey everyone,

    This is my first 2010 recovery operation and I know there's a link at:

    http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/dpmexchbackup/thread/0fbc3b4e-b85f-4e69-928b-5d37bf4da7a5

    But it's not exactly the senario I have and I don't want to mess this up.

    So far I have completed the following:

    1)  Created a recovery DB in Exchange 2010
    2)  Restored to the recovery DB from DPM 2010
    3)  ran ESUTIL /R against the logs and it completed 100%

    Now...the Database is dismounted and I'm ready for the next steps, but I don't really know where to move from here.
    The user is online on the same Exchange server and the recovery DB.  I only want the calendar data back...and the user is online.

    What's the next steps my peeps :o)

    Thanks a lot!

  • Hi,

    I think you should run Restore-Mailbox instead of New-MailboxRestoreRequest.

    According to the description of these two cmdlet, we can see that:

    New-MailboxRestoreRequest cmdlet to restore a soft-deleted or disconnected mailbox.

    Restore-Mailbox cmdlet to extract mailbox content from a restored database.

  • I saw that...but those commands state "to complete a full restore of a mailbox" or "restore to an archieve folder"

    I don't want to do a full restore...I want to merge missing calendar entries.

    Can the archieve folder even house calendar data?

     

    Thanks again,
