Table 64: User interface elements

Element Description
Do not create missing mailboxes Only restores data in mailboxes that already exist in the domain you have specified. If a target mailbox is missing, its data is not restored.
Create missing mailboxes Restores all items you have selected. If a target mailbox is missing from the domain, it will be created on the live Exchange Server you specify.
Create missing mailboxes and restore their user accounts Restores all items you have selected. If a target mailbox is missing from the domain, it will be created on the live Exchange Server you specify, and its account restored from an AD backup. This option requires Recovery Manager for Active Directory.

Select AD Backup

On this page, you can use the AD backups list to select the Active Directory backup from which you want to recover user accounts for the missing mailboxes that will be created.

The AD backups list only includes the Active Directory backups that are registered and unpacked with Recovery Manager for Active Directory installed on the Recovery Manager for Exchange computer. The backups must be unpacked using either the Online Restore Wizard or the Group Policy Restore Wizard.

For more information on how to register and unpack Active Directory backups, see the Recovery Manager for Active Directory User Guide.

Select AD Container

You can use this page to select the Active Directory container where you want to create user accounts. The creation of these accounts is required to create the mailboxes that are missing from the domain you have specified. Use the AD containers list to browse for and select the Active Directory container where you want to create mailbox-enabled user accounts.
