Restore Exchange Databases

Follow these steps to restore an Exchange Database

2. The Exchange Databases list will appear. Next to the Exchange database you wish to restore data from, click Actions > Restore.

5. The Restore Options screen appears. You can choose from 3 restore options. These are described below.

 

Option 1 - Restore to Same Database
Description Before You Begin Steps

Allows a restore of an Exchange database to be performed over top of the existing production database, if it still exists.

 

Select the member server if the Exchange is configured in a DAG configuration.

  • Make sure that the database that you want to restore is dismounted and marked for overwrite.
  • Suspend the Storage Group or Database copy so that replication does not occur during the restore.
  • Make sure that the Storage Group or the Database name uses ASCII characters only and does not contain the plus (+) character.
  • Exchange databases can only be restored to the same version of Exchange from which the database was backed up. For example, you cannot restore an Exchange 2013 database to an Exchange 2010 server.

1. Select Same database

2. Select the Member server from the drop down
