restore a single user mailbox in exchange 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    it is looking like i am going to need to restore a mailbox for a single user only.

    The customer uses exchange 2010 on sbs 2011. The backups of exchange are made with a third party solution which off loaded to a datacentre.

    To be honest i would not know where to start on recovering the mailbox for the user in question.

    Please can anyone help?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    Create a recovery database and restore the mailbox database to this recovery database:

    Then restore the mailbox from this recovery database:

  • thats great thank you very much. I am not sure about the cmdlet below

    New-MailboxRestoreRequest - do i have to use the mailbox GUID or can i use the username? Both options are covered in the suggested article but i am not sure which is the best method to use?

    Thanks

    .. . . provided the value is unique within the database. :-)
