Using the Local Mount Utility for Mailbox Restore

The Local Mount Utility (LMU) plays the important role of letting you mount and open the recovery point of an Exchange data store. Opening the database from the recovery point in the LMU automatically launches Mailbox Restore and lets you recover backed up Exchange items.

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

The following LMU procedures are associated with recovering Exchange data using Mailbox Restore.

Opening an Exchange database in Mailbox Restore using the Local Mount Utility

Opening an Exchange database in Mailbox Restore using the Local Mount Utility

To restore an Exchange item backed up in a Rapid Recovery recovery point, you can open Mailbox Restore using the Local Mount Utility (LMU).

Complete the steps in the following procedure to mount a Rapid Recovery recovery point of an Exchange data store using the LMU.

1.
From the machine on which Mailbox Restore is installed, open the Local Mount Utility.
3.
Right-click the database, and then click Open the database for recovery.
Mailbox Restore automatically launches and opens the Exchange data store.

Copying Exchange libraries to a remote machine

The Local Mount Utility (LMU) lets you mount a recovery point from Rapid Recovery machine or remotely from any non-Core machine. If you want to restore an Exchange item using Mailbox Restore, then the correct Exchange libraries (DLLs) must be present on the same machine. When you mount and open an Exchange database on a Core machine, the Core automatically downloads the necessary Exchange libraries (DLLs). However, if you are restoring from a remote machine and the correct DLLs are not present, then you must find and retrieve them.

The DLLs on the machine using Mailbox Restore must match the version of Exchange in which the database was created. For example, if the database you want to open was created in Exchange 2007, the DLLs on the non-Core machine must contain DLLs that correspond to Exchange 2007.

If you were prompted to copy the Exchange libraries because you are opening the database using the LMU on a non-Core machine, complete the steps in the following procedure.

1.
From the Copy Exchange 2007 / 2010 / 2013 / 2016 DLLs window, complete either of the following options:

Mailbox Restore searches the location for compatible DLLs. The results appear in the table.

Mailbox Restore copies the files to the local machine.
