Recovering Exchange Data

Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Data Protection Manager

When you select a Microsoft Exchange database for recovery, you can select from the following recovery options:

  • Recover the database to its original location.

    This option is available only if you select Latest as the recovery point.

    If you select this option, and the recovery destination contains files that have the same names as the files you are recovering, the current database files will be overwritten during recovery.

    For Exchange 2003 only: You must configure the target database to allow it to be overwritten by the recovered data. For instructions, see "How to Configure the Exchange Databases so That the Restore Process Overwrites Them".

  • Recover the database to another database on an Exchange 2007 server.

    This option is available only for Exchange 2007.

    This option is not available if you select Latest as the recovery point. You must specify an existing database to which the selected database will be recovered. You must configure the target database to allow it to be overwritten by the recovered data. For instructions, see How to Configure the Exchange Databases so That the Restore Process Overwrites Them.

  • Recover to Recovery Storage Group.

    This option is available only for Exchange 2007.

    This option is not available if you select Latest as the recovery point.

  • Copy the database to a network folder.

    This option is not available if you select Latest as the recovery point. 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

    To use the Bring the database to a clean shutdown after copying the files option, 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 an Exchange Server installation or an Exchange Server Administrator-only-mode installation.

  • Copy the database to tape.

    This option is not available if you select Latest as the recovery point. This option copies the replica of the storage group that contains the selected database.
