Exchange 2010 restore issues

Running Exchange 2010 on Windows 2008 R2, DP 6.11 running on HP-UX. Backups run fine but I am not able to recover to a Recovery DB in Exchange. Recovery DB is set to be overwritten and offline.

Re: Exchange 2010 restore issues

I was finally able to get mine working. Had to do with the writers. Try running 'vssadmin list writers' and check teh state of the Exchange writer on your Exchange server. It needs to be 'Stable' and 'No error". if it is something different, try rebooting the Exchange server.

Re: Exchange 2010 restore issues

Hi all

 

We have the same problem as amitt. Maybe since installing the latest patches on DP 6.21 DPWIN_00665 and DPWIN_00666 ?

 

Any solutions available ?

 

Regards
