I just did this last week and it was quite a project.  If you are setting up
Exchange on a backup server you need to make sure that the new server is off
the network and it must be it's own DC in a new forest.  Set the
organization name the same as your production server.  Actually, I made
everything the same just to be safe (Including the server name).  I use
Backup Exec and after many tries it finally works the way I want it to.
After you restore the Information store, create a user in AD and connect it
to the mailbox that you want to restore.  I installed Outlook on the backup
server for single mailbox recovery.  Now I can export all the mail from the
mailbox to a PST and import it back into my production server.  I hope this

I have not done this, but we have just recently helped another Exchange
administrator on site implement Tivoli back up for our server.

From what I understand about restoring the IS, is that it would need to be
put on a server that is identical to the existing server. I hope that
someone else who has more experience, can assist you with this issue. Good

Hello to all Exchange Guru's
I have to restore the mail of a single user from the information
store.... my presumption .. its not possible without restoring the
entire information store... and the backup has been performed on
ArcServe without the brock level option.
I want to restore the entire information store (If it comes to that ) on
a different machien that has entirely different hardware specs from the
actual machine. I have recreated a compleltely different active I need help as to how to proceed.. can I install exchange
on that machine with the new active directory (new domain contrller in a
physoically different network) and restore then install exchange and
then restore the information store on that machine...??
Please help
