How to restore an Exchange 2010 Mailbox to a Recovery Database.
Note: Public Databases are not supported
Note: Only one Mailbox can be restored to a RecoveryDB on Exchange 2010.
1. Have DBA-type backup by Hiback including the database.
2. Run restore using Hiback from the DBA-backup without activating DBA.
a. select all files (.edb,.log,.chk,.jrs) belonging to a single Mailbox
b. set options for restore (alternate destination, not DBA)
c. restore the DB-files.
3. Use Exchange-WPS to create a RecoveryDB
New-MailboxDatabase -Recovery -Name RecoveryDB -Server Ex2010 -EDBFilePath h:\exc-h\recover\mounted-db.edb -LogFolderPath h:\exc-h\recover
where h:\exc-h\recover is the alternate destination set as restore option.
4. Check and recover the Database using eseutil.exe
Sample with all files in one destination:
cd h:\exc-h\recover\
Eseutil /mh h:\exc-h\recover\mounted-db.edb
Eseutil /r e05 /i /a /d
5. Mount the RecoveryDB in Exchange Management Console and extract mails.
