Dear Symantec experts,
I’ve an issue with restoring my files / exchange mailboxes.
We use Backup Exec 2012, include SP4.
When I want to restore some files, I select the date, but there is no information / data visible. What I see is that there is a warning logo visible on the selected date, but no folders or files. I’m really sure that there was data in the back-up.
But my Exchange 2010 jobs are stranger.
Some catalog jobs are failed, when I restart them, the job says it’s successfully. But why is this not directly completed?
When I want to restore some mailbox items, I select the date and the database, when I want to open this, I receive the error: “Query Failed”. How can I resolve this?
I've followed the instruction in the blog, but a repair of the BEDB doesn't helps. I can't restore mailbox items from some dates because the "Query failure" shows up. Some other dates works fine.
Are you restoring from tape or disk ? If tape, would recommend to duplicate the existing backup sets to disk and then retry the restore.
Is this a stand-alone BE server or part of a CASO-MMS setup ?
Have you tried recataloging the storage media prior to the restore ?
This can also be occur if there are lots of items listed in the resource view. As a workaround, use the "Search" option to explicitly search and restore the required data.
Hi VJWare / Arkya,
I've Back-ups to disk, from there a duplicate to tape. The restore that I'm try is from disk.
We use a stand-alone Backup Exec Server.
How can I recataloging the storage media?
It's true that there are a lots of items listed in the resource view. The work around does not help because I can't search for a full mailbox, only to mailbox items like as notes and contacts. Or is there an onther way to search for full mailboxes?
The duplicate job is stored on two different tapes for the file job (Issue1) But how can I check te catalog exactly?
Sorry for my knowledge about BE2012 I'm new with BE2012.
For the Exchange restore it doesn't help, I've again the Query Failed error. Also for the file restore, it doesn't help. By selecting a data, there are no files visible.
But What I see, when I'm uncheck the "request all media sequence based catalog", the "Use storage-based catalogs" are greyed out.
The "truncate catalogs after * months" is set on 2months is that OK?
Please if the backup tapes that you are using are older 2 months, then backup exec will automatically remove the catalogs once 2 month is over as per the default setting is checked.uncheck the "request all media sequence based catalog" and storage based catalog will be automatically checked and will be greayed out. Try to run the catalog now.
I assume the tapes from where you are trying to restore was used 2 months back and it needs to be cataloged, after that you will be able to see the data.
Thanks for the answer, it helps for my file restore!
But unfortunnately not for the Exchange job. The data is available on disk, but I've get the query failure again by browsing in a back-up.
If any one knows what I can do to fix that, it would be great.
Is it possible to install a trial version of BE 2014 on another server and check if you are receiving "Query failed" error for the Exchange backup sets ?
If yes, pls do ensure BE 2014 is updated with SP2 and HF 227745 prior to attempting the restore.
Thanks for your reply. At this moment I've no another server available, I will check you suggestion at another moment when we had an extra machine available.
