The Local Mount Utility

This section describes how to download, install, and use the Windows-based Rapid Recovery Local Mount Utility (LMU) to mount recovery points and explore the contents from a file level using a machine that does not host the Rapid Recovery Core.

About the Local Mount Utility

The Local Mount Utility (LMU) is a downloadable Windows-based application that lets you mount a Rapid Recovery recovery point in any of the three available modes on any compatible Windows machine. The light-weight utility can be installed on the same 32-bit and 64-bit Windows operating systems as the Rapid Recovery Agent software, but it does not have to be installed on the same machine as the Agent. The LMU includes the rapidrecovery-vdisk (formerly aavdisk) and aavstor drivers, but it does not run as a service. When you install the utility, by default, it is installed in the directory C:\Program Files\AppRecovery\Local Mount Utility and a shortcut appears on the machine’s desktop.

While the utility was designed for remote access to a Rapid Recovery Core machine, you can also install the LMU on the same machine as a Rapid Recovery Core. When it runs on a Core, the application 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 Core Console.

When the LMU is installed on the same machine as Mailbox Restore, the LMU automatically launches Mailbox Restore when you use it to open an Exchange database. Mailbox Restore is the Quest Rapid Recovery application used to restore Microsoft Exchange data stores and items. You can install it upon installation of the LMU or the Rapid Recovery Core. For more information about Mailbox Restore, see the Rapid Recovery Mailbox Restore for Microsoft Exchange User Guide.
