Restoring Exchange

Post by markfellows »

Could somebody point me in the direction of some resources for Exchange 2007/2010 recovery with Veeam v5 in the scenarios detailed below :

Full VM recovery (is this just restoring the VM and Veeam handles the rest?)

Database corruption during business hours (restore database and log replay)

We’re due to start testing this in the next few days. I performed a search through the forums but couldn’t really find what I was after.

Thanks.

Yes.

Never done log replay restores for Exchange, buy my theoretical understanding:
1. Find latest "good" Exchange VM backup (before corruption occured).
2. Restore mailbox database file from latest "good" backup to corrupted Exchange VM.
3. Restore log files from all backups from latest "good" backup and all subsequent backups to corrupted Exchange VM.
4. Perform log replay on corrupted Exchange VM.

Thanks!

Thanks Anton,

Just wanted to check that there wasn’t a way to restore db files and automatically replay logs in v5.

Yes, you can restore database and log files using instant file level recovery, directly to corrupted Exchange VM. But no, automatic replay is not there.
