PST exports

Veeam Logoby efd121 » Fri Jan 29, 2016 9:01 pm

Does anyone know of a way to use PowerShell to export PST’s from Exchange backups?

Get-VBRApplicationRestorePoint returns the restore points that are available for Exchange backups but I have not been able to find any related commands that would allow me to export a particular user’s mailbox to a PST.

I’m trying to automate these type of restores for our E-Discovery team.

You're not missing something, as VEX functionality is not currently covered by PowerShell cmdlets. Thanks.

Can we request this as a new feature?

Yep, you've already done it by posting on these forums. If we were to implement it, would be Exchange item-level restore functionality that's currently available in Enterprise Manager enough for you in case of PowerShell? Thanks.

I would mainly use it to export whole mailboxes to PST.

I agree with the_mentor

I need to be able to export PST's, I'm not looking to restore back to production.

My main reason for this is for our E-Discovery team that is collecting PST's. If I could to this with PS, they wouldn't even need access to the console. We could build a fully automated process

Thank you, David, for the feedback. Based on the demand for this functionality, we'll think what can be done in this regard in one of the next product versions. Thanks.

It's unlikely that the said script can be created since functionality of the Veeam Explorer for MS Exchange is not scriptable via PowerShell at the moment. Thanks.

Maybe an old work around (for now) would be to start the Exchange server in a virtual lab and then use native exchange powershell to export certain mailboxes (although granularity seems difficult)

Hi,

As Exchange Provider, we are really interested to automate PST restoring from a restore point. We got several requests for that (20+ by week) but cannot handle them (too many hand operations).

We hope this feature will be released soon.

Did you got the chance to implement/schedule this feature? Or do you have some idea to create a fully automated process to generate a pst?

Thanks

It's still planned, though, no ETA at the moment. As to workarounds, you can try the one coined by Timothy. Thanks.
