How to Add Databases to Be Restored
Topic Last Modified: 2005-05-23
This topic explains how to add the databases to be restored to aid in database recovery. For more information, see How to Set Up a Recovery Storage Group.
In Exchange System Manager, find the server on which you created the recovery storage group, right-click the recovery storage group and then click Add Database to Recover.
Exchange automatically determines which databases can be added to the recovery storage group and presents you with a list from which to choose.
In the Select database to recover dialog box, click the database that you want to recover and then click OK (see the following figure).
Note: If the recovery storage group already contains a database, Exchange limits the list of databases to those in the same storage group as the database that has already been added to the recovery storage group.
Select database to recover dialog box
Name the database, and define the paths for the database and streaming database files (see the following two figures). Remember that if you intend to copy these files to the original storage group to replace the original database, the names must match those used for the original database.
