Performing post-restore steps for SCR environments

After restoring a Storage Group that has been configured with SCR, the passive copy must be resynchronized with the Update-StorageGroupCopy command. For more information, see the following Microsoft resources:

Performing post-restore steps for DAG environments

If you did not use the Update database Replication after Recovery option, use the Exchange Management Console or Shell to update the database copies manually. For more information, see the Update a Mailbox Database Copy topic at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd351100.aspx.

Examples of restore sequences

NetVault Backup sees all restore scenarios using the plug-in as a sequence of restores, from the recovery of a series of 10 Incremental Backups to the recovery of a single Full Backup. Therefore, you must follow a specific set of steps to recover data successfully. The following topics offer examples for various backup types. These examples assume that a noncontinuous replication environment is deployed.

Restoring a standalone Full Backup

Restoring a single Full Backup is seen as a restore sequence by the Plug‑in for Exchange. Therefore, you must follow these steps to restore a standalone Full Backup and ensure that its recovered data is suitable for use by Exchange.
