Applies To: System Center 2012 - Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Data Protection Manager
When you copy a storage group to a network folder, System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM) creates the following directory structure at the destination that you specify:
DPM_Recovery_Point_ timestamp\DPM_Recovered_At_timestamp\Server name\Exchange application\Database name\Files
The DPM protection agent and the Eseutil utility must be installed on the destination server. The Eseutil utility can be installed as part of either a Microsoft Exchange Server installation or an Exchange Server Administrator-only-mode installation.
How to copy Exchange data to a network folder
In DPM Administrator Console, click Recovery on the navigation bar.
Using the browse functionality, select the storage group or database to recover.
On the calendar, click any date in bold to obtain the recovery points available for that date. The Time menu lists the time for each available recovery point.
On the Time menu, select the recovery point you want to use. Do not select Latest for the recovery point.
In the Actions pane, click Recover.
The Recovery Wizard starts. The wizard options vary depending on the version of Exchange.
On the Review recovery selection page, click Next.
Select Copy to a network folder, and then click Next.
Specify the destination path to which the storage group or database should be copied.
On the Specify recovery options page, you can select from the following options:
Bring the database to a clean shutdown after copying the files.
This option is available if you are copying a database, and it brings the database files to a mountable condition by copying the logs. Select this option only if the destination is an Exchange-based server that has the same version of the Exchange application and the same or later version of Eseutil.exe as at the time of protection.
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.
- Bring the database to a clean shutdown after copying the files.
