How to Ensure that Storage Group and Database Display Names Match the Names of the Files You Are Restoring


Topic Last Modified: 2005-05-09

This topic explains how to ensure that storage group and database display names match the names of the files you are restoring.

  1. In your backup or restore device, insert the backup media that contains the backups that you want to restore.

  2. Start Backup in Advanced Mode: Click Start, click Run, type ntbackup, and click OK. Then click the Advanced Mode link on the Welcome screen.

  3. Click the Restore and Manage Media tab, and then in the console tree, click the backup media that you want to restore.

  4. If the correct media does not display in the console tree, you might have to rebuild the catalog. For more information about how to rebuild the catalog, see "Rebuilding a Catalog for a Restore" in Using Backup to Restore Your Data.

  5. Expand the tree structure of the media so that the name of each Exchange database that you are restoring appears.

  6. Record the names of the storage groups and each mailbox store or public folder store that you want to restore.

  7. Open Exchange System Manager. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.

  8. In Exchange System Manager, navigate to the server that contains the database that you want to restore.

  9. In the console tree and details pane, note the names of the storage group and databases. Compare these with the storage group and database names on your backup media. The names in Exchange System Manager must match those on the backup media or the restore process will fail.
