... in Veeam B&R v126.96.36.1997 running on Windows Server 2012R2.
Let me try to explain, what I mean...
We have Veeam B&R v188.8.131.527 running on a Windows Server 2012R2 physical machine with lots of disk space available. This server is part of our company Windows domain. Let's call the Windows domain 'COMPANY'. One of our customers has some virtual machines on our Company VMware farm, so we decided to make a backup of those virtual machines with the upper mentioned backup Server being part of the Domain 'COMPANY'.
The virtual machines from our customer are part of another Windows Domain. Let's call this Windows Domain 'CUSTOMER'.
We have one backup Job for each Microsoft Exchange 2010 System. One Exchange 2010 System is part of the Domain 'COMPANY', the other Exchange 2010 System is part of the Domain 'CUSTOMER'. We use a Special account in each Domain, which has sufficient rights to backup all Exchange 2010 data and which is configured in the backup Job for each Exchange 2010 System.
Both Domain users, which are used in the backup Job to backup the Exchange 2010 data are impersonated in the corresponding Exchange 2010 System and Domain.
The backup runs smoothly without any error.
Now, if I wish to restore an Exchange item from a disk Job via the Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange to the COMPANY Domain Exchange 2010 Server, I can select, whatever I want. I can save the item as a message file, I can Export items to a PST-file, I can restore it to the original Location.
If I wish to restore an Exchange item from a disk Job via the Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange to the CUSTOMER Domain Exchange 2010 Server, I can select to save the item to a message file and I can Export items to a PST-file, but I am unable to restore items to the original Location.
Remember, the Veeam B&R Server is part of the COMPANY Windows Domain and not part of the CUSTOMER Windows Domain. I have 2 disk Jobs. In the first disk Job, a user from the COMPANY Domain is configured to be able to backup Exchange 2010 data from the COMPANY Domain Exchange 2010 Server. In the second Job, a user with full rights and impersonation on the CUSTOMER Domain Exchange 2010 Server is configured.
What I notice during the Exchange item restore, is the fact, that restoring items to the CUSTOMER Domain Exchange 2010 Server requires me to Change the account Name in the Windows box 'Restore Wizard' and 'Specify target Mailbox and Domain account to be used'. I enter the corresponding mail-address for the mailbox, I wish to restore items to. So far so good. Now the right CAS-Server from the CUSTOMER Domain Needs to be selected manually and restore to the original Location is selected automatically. The box 'Specify the restore options' has Defaults selected. I press the button 'restore' and as result I get ...
0 items successfully created
0 items merged
0 items created
The restore is impossible. I have no idea, what's missing to be able to restore Exchange items to an Exchange 2010 System of a different Domain, when the backup Server is part of another Domain.
Has anyone a similar configuration and can Point me in the right direction or do I Need to always Export items to a PST-file, because I cannot restore Exchange items to a Domain, which is not part of the Domain from the backup Server itself.
Thanks and best regards,
