Problem restoring Exchange mails to new server

Hi

I have a problem restoring some Exchange 2003 mails from an old backup.

I have recently upgraded to Exchange 2010 and Backup Exec 2010, and now i try to restore som individual mails from an old backup (Exchange 2003 and Backup Exec 12).

I have created a new exchange user and tries to restore the mails, using redirection to the new server and mailboks.

I have granted the backup exec administrator full access to the Exchange account, this have worked before.

The old mailbox user is not in our AD anymore.

Only calendar apointments is restored, not any mails or folders.

I get the following error when restoring: V-79-57344-765, but the error description from this does not match my problem, Backup exec is fully patched from live update.

Thanks on advance.

Regards

  • I think it is not possible to restore Exchange 2003 data directly into Exchange 2010.

     

    The only option would be to install a temp Exchange 2003 (separated from your production network) and then restore the mailbox/mailbox items. And then use exmerge to create a PST of it, and import it in Exchange 2010.

  • Hi ZeRoCOOL

    Think you are right, cannot get it to restore.

    Well will try an exchange 2003 one day when i get the time...

    Thanks for all your answers.

  • Hi All,

    Could you say, this is correct only for GRT restores or also affect all backups done via Microsoft Information Store?

    Thanks.
