Recovering Exchange Server 2010 Data

Updated: April 21, 2010

Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

You can use DPM to recover Exchange Server 2010 mailboxes and mailbox databases. The procedures to recover Exchange Server 2010 data are the same as those to recover Exchange Server 2007 data.

Recovering Exchange Server 2010 Mailboxes

DPM supports the following types of recovery for Exchange Server 2010 mailboxes:

  • Recover to an Exchange Server database. Recover only to Exchange Server recovery databases.

  • Recover to a network location. Copy the database to a network folder.

  • Copy to tape. Create an on-tape copy of the database.

Recovering Exchange Server 2010 Mailbox Databases

Changing the status of a database from active to passive or vice versa may affect the recovery process. If the database is passive, DPM cannot perform a Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) recovery.

Recovering to the active database is the same as recovering to an Exchange Server 2010 stand-alone node. The Exchange Server administrator must synchronize the passive copy from the recovered active copy by running the Resume-MailboxDatabaeCopy cmdlet on the Exchange server. You can recover a database only on the node that was protected.

DPM supports the following five types of recovery for Exchange Server 2010 mailbox databases:

  1. Recover the database to its original location. Overwrite the existing copy of the database.

  2. Recover the database to an alternate database. Restore to another database on an Exchange Server.

  3. Recover to an Exchange Recovery database. Recover to an Exchange Recovery database instead of a standard mailbox database.

  4. Recover to network location. Copy the database to a network folder.

  5. Copy to tape. Create an on-tape copy of the database.

noteNote
DPM 2010 does not support recovering mailbox databases to passive databases. While recovering to the original database or to an alternate database, the target database on which the recovery is being performed should not be passive.
