Recovering an Exchange database on another hardware... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all;

    I have an Exchange 2003 Server in our domain. Now I have replaced its functionality by another third-party software. So I have disconnected it temporary from the network and keep it active if someone needs its mailbox (so I can connect it to the network again).

    I have DPM 2012 in my domain and so protected the Exchange Server with it. Now my question is that if I uninstall the Exchange Server from the server (to use the hardware for other services and applications), in the case of requiring some mails from the unisnatalled Exchange Server, can I install the Exchange Server again (in another hardware or maybe in virtualized environment) and recover the backed up data to it?

  • Hi ,

    If you have taken system state and bare metal backup then it will be easy to recover .

    else you need to build the server with Same name and do the recovery process on temporary Recovery database  then need to Restore mailbox from it.

  • From a straight DPM perspective, if you have a backup you should be able to restore to a network location on any server that has a DPM agent installed from that DPM server.  You can then use Exchange tools to complete the restore on the Exchange side(assuming you have followed the requirements needed for Exchange)
