SnapProtect - Restore - Exchange Database Agent

Perform a Restore

As restoring your backup data is very crucial, it is recommended that you perform a restore operation immediately after your first full backup to understand the process.

The following sections explain the steps for restoring a single database to a different client computer.

    • From the CommCell Console, navigate to Policies | Storage Policies.
    • Right-click the <storage policy> and click Properties.
    • Click the Copy Precedence tab.

    By default, the snapshot copy is set to 1 and is used for the operation.

    You can also use a different copy for performing the operation. For the copy that you want to use, set the copy precedence as 1.

    • Click OK.
  1. From the CommCell Console, navigate to Client Computers | <Client> | Exchange Database.

    Right-click the Agent and then click All Tasks | Browse and Restore.

  2. Click the Advanced Options and click View Content.

  3. Select the Microsoft Information Store in the left pane. Select a database in the right pane.

    Click Recover All Selected.

  4. Select the name of the client computer from the Destination Client list.
