Category: Backup & Restore



So this is the last part of restoring the database and mailbox, after restoring from NTBackup, go back to Exchange Troubleshooting Assistant and mount the Database

image

select the Database and choose Mount

image

After mounting, you got the information that the Database successfully mounted

image

Go back to home screen and choose Merge or copy mailbox contents, Then you choose the DB that you mounted earlier.

image

After that choose Perform pre-merge tasks

image

You can choose the user mailbox that you want to perform merge task, then click Save.

image

Or if you don’t want to merge to that user, you can choose other mailbox user, but you have to use EMS like the following command below

It’s a wrap guys! Open-mouthed smile


Here we go, part II Smile

Of course we need to start NTBackup to do process restoration for our Database, type ntbackup in command promtp and NTBackup will appear, just click Next

image

Choose Restore files and settings and click Next to continue

image

Choose the file *.bkf that want to restore, make sure to check all the necessary files/folders, then click Next to continue

image

Then you will show this window, make sure for Last Restore Set is checked, we want to mount the DB later on, so uncheck it

image

Click Finish to start restore process

image

After it done, just click Close or you can see the restore process Report

see you on part III Open-mouthed smile


This is my first case trying to restore Database using NTBackup, usually I’m using DPM. Ok, first of all you have to create Recovery Storage Group (RSG) from EMC. This tool can be opened from EMC > Toolbox. Then you can choose an option : Create a recovery storage group

image

After that you have to choose Storage Group to link with RSG > Next

image

You can give RSG name and browse the path for DB and log, after that Create the recovery storage group

image

There you go, RSG have been created! Open-mouthed smile

Bye, I’ll continue for part II later on Smile
