Registering a damaged Exchange Server database

You can register a damaged Exchange Server database as a storage. If the database’s log files and .stm file are inaccessible, missing or corrupted, Recovery Manager for Exchange repairs the damaged database and brings it to a consistent state.

To register a damaged database as a storage

  1. In the Recovery Manager Console, from the main menu, select Add Storages | From Offline Files.
  2. On the Select What to Register page, click Exchange Server database.
  3. Follow the instructions in the wizard to complete the operation.

Database repair performed by Recovery Manager for Exchange is the same operation as a hard repair performed by running the eseutil /p command. For additional information about performing a hard repair on an Exchange database, see the Microsoft KB Article “XADM: Ramifications of running the eseutil /p or edbutil /d /r command in Exchange.”

Opening a storage

You can browse a storage in the left pane only after you open that storage.

Opening a storage mounts the Exchange Server database or establishes a connection to the Lotus Domino database, Exchange Server or Exchange Online mailbox or public folder hierarchy, or Personal Folders (.pst) file associated with that storage.

After you open a storage, you can view, browse, and restore its contents.

To open an Exchange Server or Exchange Online mailbox registered as a storage, you must have sufficient permissions to access that mailbox.

To open a public folder hierarchy registered as a storage, you must have Read permission for that public folder hierarchy.

When you close Recovery Manager for Exchange, all registered storages are closed: Exchange Server databases are dismounted and Lotus Domino databases, Exchange Server and Exchange Online mailboxes and public folder hierarchies, and .pst files are disconnected.

To open a storage

  1. To open a source storage, expand the Source Storages node in the left pane.

To open a target storage, expand the Target Storages node in the left pane.

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Double-click the storage you want to open.
    • Right-click the storage you want to open, and click Open on the shortcut menu.

If the Open command is unavailable, the storage is already open.

Closing a storage

You can close a storage by using the Close command.

To close a storage

  1. To close a source storage, expand the Source Storages node in the left pane.

To close a target storage, expand the Target Storages node in the left pane.

  1. Right-click the storage you want to close, and then click Close on the shortcut menu.

If the Close command is unavailable, the storage you have selected is already closed.

Renaming a storage

In the Recovery Manager Console, storages are identified by their display names. When registering a storage, Recovery Manager for Exchange assigns a default name to that storage. Once a storage is registered, you can give it a more descriptive name if necessary.

To rename a storage

  1. To rename a source storage, expand the Source Storages node in the left pane.

To rename a target storage, expand the Target Storages node in the left pane.

  1. Right-click the storage you want to rename, and then click Rename on the shortcut menu.
  2. Type a new name and press ENTER.

Renaming a storage only changes the display name of the storage, leaving the other properties intact.
