Specify Exchange Server Emulation Options

Appendices > Add Storage Wizard > Specify Exchange Server Emulation Options

Use this page to specify the Exchange Server restore interface parameters you want to emulate with Recovery Manager for Exchange.

If you are registering Exchange Server 2007, 2003, or 2000 databases, use the Storage groups in backup list to type the names of the storage groups to which belong the databases you want to register from backup.

Note: When registering storages from a backup, you must specify the same storage group names that are in the backup.

Specify Database Location

Appendices > Add Storage Wizard > Specify Database Location

On the Specify Database Location page, the wizard prompts you to specify a path to a folder—the wizard will extract the database files to that folder, and register the database from that location.

Table 85: User interface elements

Element Description
Path to store extracted databases Displays the default path to the folder where the wizard places extracted databases. You can type a new path in this box.
Browse Opens a dialog box you can use to select an existing folder or create and select a new folder where you want to place the extracted database files.

Emulating Exchange Server

Appendices > Add Storage Wizard > Emulating Exchange Server

On the Emulating Exchange Server page, you can view the status of the database restoration to the emulated Exchange Server.

When the Status box displays “Emulation started. Waiting for connection from backup application,” start the restore with your backup software. While restoring data using your backup software, you must specify the computer running Recovery Manager for Exchange as a restore target.

The Last backup set restored check box appears on this page when Recovery Manager for Exchange has received full backups of each storage group you specified for Exchange Server 2000, Exchange Server 2003, or Exchange Server 2007 on the Specify Exchange Server Emulation Options page.

You may select the Last backup set restored check box to stop the Exchange Server emulation after current data set is received.

If you erroneously select the Last backup set restored check box, you may clear the check box to continue the Exchange Server emulation. In this case, the emulation continues only if you do not specify the last data set to restore in your backup software.

When the Status box reads “Restore is completed,” the Exchange Server emulation stops.

When you click Next, the wizard displays a series of pages in which you can view the progress of the storage registration operation, and cancel the operation if necessary. For more information, see Extracting an Exchange Server database from backup.

Specify NetWorker Server and Backed Up Exchange

Appendices > Add Storage Wizard > Specify NetWorker Server and Backed Up Exchange

On this page, specify the NetWorker Server that holds the backups you want to retrieve and the backed up Exchange Server computer whose backups you want to retrieve. When you click Next, the wizard connects to the NetWorker Server and retrieves backups created for the Exchange Server you have specified.
