restore of passiv DAG DB possible & restore of single item RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was wondering if anything has changed with DPM 2012 (SP1) in regards to restore of passiv DAG DBs. What I found so far is that backup is no Problem with DPM but restore is only possible to alternate location and then manual steps have to be taken to copy the restored DB.

    Has anyhting changed with DPM 2012 SP1 - maybe when using Exchange 2013?

    The same question for singel item restore (single mail or mailbox). Will DPM still restore the whole DB when selecting "restore of single mailbox" or is DPM 2012 - just like in sharepoint - only restoring the mailbox to the exchange server?

  • Hi Saren90,

    Nothing has changed since DPM 2010.

    You restore passive DB to alternate location and you need to restore the whole DB in RDB to recover a single mailbox. (Even if you use Exchange 2013)
