Exchange Recovery Database with Backup Exec 2010 R2

Below are the steps in order to restore an Exchange 2010 DB to a recovery database using Backup Exec 2010 R2.

1. Create 2 folders on the Exchange mailbox server.

•Database –> E:\Recovery\Database

•Transaction Logs –> E:\Recovery\Logs

Make sure you're restoring full backup and not differential otherwise otherwise only the logs will restore.
New-MailboxDatabase -Recovery -Name RDB -Server DCEXMAILP01 -EdbFilePath "E:\Recovery\RDB\RDB.EDB" -LogFolderPath "E:\Recovery\RDB"

Mount the DB, need a blank DB file to Pre-exist then dismount and delete all files except the .edb in the E:\Recovery\Database. (Ensure that on the DB properties the check box is checked for for database can be overwritten by a restore. It should still be checked.

Once recover is complete, the DB will automatically be mounted.
Get-MailboxStatistics -Database RecoverDB

Restore-Mailbox -Identity User1 -RecoveryDatabase rdb

Restore to pst

New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox User1 -FilePath file://dcexmailp01/PST%20Dumps/User1.pst

Get-MailboxExportRequest (to show the status of the export)

The same can be done with much ease using a third party tool such as Lepide Exchange Manager. The restore operation is backed by a number of tools which allows the user to restore only what is required instead of entire mailbox. The restore is performed directly from the EBD, and depending upon the environment (Online Incremental or Offline), the associate files are needed (.stm, .log, .chk, .pat).

Plus, there is no need to backup individual mailboxes separately because they can be directly restored from an EDB. Also the product can repair the corrupted EDB and you need not to export your corrupt EDB into PST, it can be directly imported into Live Exchange Environment.

Thanks for the great tips. Owing to the data size limitations, virus infection, hard drive or power failure etc., the PST file(s) is bound to corrupt anytime, causing irreversible data loss in the absence of a backup. Thus, one should always have a data backup in place to reverse the irreversible Outlook data loss.Find here how to Convert an OST File to PST in Outlook 2007.

Microsoft provides some free utilities, named as Eseutil.exe, Exmerge.exe and Export-Mailbox. These tools convert EDB to PST and extract the user mailboxes in .PST file format. However in case of severely corruption, these tools may fails. The best way to handle this situation is using some advanced third party EDB to PST Converter software. You can use free trial version for extracting edb mailboxes.

Hy James,

Thanks for sharing the Exchange Server maintenance steps but if someone is not much technical then i would suggest him to use third party tool rather than trying default commands. To try default commands for Exchange recovery and backup purpose is tough and time consuming; even experts prefer third party tools these days. Check -
