How to recover a database to an alternate database

  2. In DPM Administrator Console, click Recovery on the navigation bar.

  3. Using the browse functionality, select the database to recover.

  4. On the calendar, click any date in bold to obtain the recovery points available for that date. The Recovery time menu lists the time for each available recovery point.

  5. On the Recovery time menu, select the recovery point you want to use.

  6. In the Actions pane, click Recover.

    The Recovery Wizard launches. The wizard options will vary depending on the version of Exchange.

  7. On the Review recovery selection page, click Next.

  8. Select Recover to another database on an Exchange Server, and then click Next.

  9. On the Specify recovery options page, you can select Send an e-mail when this recovery completes.

    Select this option to specify an e-mail address or addresses to notify upon recovery completion. If you select this option, you must enter the e-mail address to notify. Multiple e-mail addresses must be separated by a comma.
