Opening Mailbox Restore for Exchange

To open Mailbox Restore, you can simply open a database from a recovery point in the Local Mount Utility (LMU).

In the LMU, when you select to open a database from a recovery point, Mailbox Restore automatically starts. There is no need to separately or manually open Mailbox Restore to recover an Exchange item from a Rapid Recovery recovery point.

However, if you choose not to use the LMU to open a database, or if you need to access Mailbox Restore for reasons other than recovering an Exchange item, such as maintenance, the application can be found in the following default locations:

When installed with the Rapid Recovery Core:

The Local Mount Utility and Mailbox Restore

Recovering an Exchange item from a Rapid Recovery recovery point is best accomplished by mounting the recovery point and opening the Exchange database file by using the Local Mount Utility (LMU).

The LMU is a downloadable application that lets you mount a recovery point on a remote Rapid Recovery Core from any machine.

Because the utility was designed for remote access to Cores, Mailbox Restore is included as a component with every installation of the LMU; however, you also can install the LMU on a Rapid Recovery Core for quick access to Mailbox Restore. When the LMU runs on a core, the utility recognizes and displays all mounts from that core, including mounts performed through the Rapid Recovery Core Console. Likewise, mounts performed on the LMU also appear in the console.

This topics in this section describe how to use Mailbox Restore and the LMU to recover email items from an Exchange data store.

For more information about the LMU, see the Rapid Recovery User Guide.

There are two ways to download the Local Mount Utility. You can download the web installer version of the software directly from the Rapid Recovery Core Console, which is practical if you are installing the LMU on the Core.
