I am running Veeam 9 on a virtual Windows 2008 R2 server - vmware 6. I'm using Lefthand P4500 G2 storage nodes for backup (yes, I know this is incredibly inefficient - it's what I have to work with at this time). My exchange environment consists of two DAG servers and two CAS/HT servers - exchange 2010. I backup one DAG and one HT/CAS in my backup job. Anyway, I'm trying to restore a users sent items folder that they "accidentally" deleted. - No worries I have Veeam! and good backups. We use archiving rules to move items off to archive after 1 year - SO...I am trying to restore a years worth of sent items to the users mailbox. I'm restoring directly to the users mailbox. I first attempted to restore everything at once - about 6 days into the restore - I felt it was hung - probably I was wrong. I cancelled the restore and started it again, only this time trying to do 1 month at a time. I took 3 days to restore 1 month of sent items - maybe 150-200 emails. Now I am on month 3 - about 3% done with Veeam telling me it will take about 5 days to complete. For one month!
Now I get that I'm not on optimal equipment and that the backups get compressed and all - but this seems crazy how long it's taking. Is there anything anyone can suggest to possibly speed up the restores?
The SANs are in a cluster with 5 nodes * 60 1TB SAS MDL disks - iSCSI.
As I'm wrapping up this post I just checked on the restore and have the following error message:
Failed to wait mutex VeeamXmlLoggerDbSessionID: 4b4bb073-2db3-41d8-855d-aa9d75933880:timeout 40 sec exceeded
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. There are no other jobs running, backup or otherwise that are running with this restore - which is causing all kinds of potential trouble for me.
