What is your concern?
 
You should be aware that the RSG is "read only" for most intents and
circumstances.

before i do it on live server. I want to do this just to ensure my
backups are intact.

        Hi,
         
        I am using Arc server backup software 11.0 to backup exchange
2003 (SP1) mailbox on a production server, however i have not tested it
by restoring. So i thought of utilizing "Recovery storage group" feature
to test the restore.
         
        i want to do the following.
         
        1. do not delete the production database (Skip creating
dial-tone database) 
        2. create recovery storage group and add the database to which i
want to restore.
        3. Restore the database and mount it (Recovery storage group)
        4. Do not swap the database 
         
        Now i will be able to see the mailbox's in the Recovery storage
group though disabled. This i feel tells me that backed up database is
intact.
         
        Is my understanding correct. Can i try this on production
server. 
         
        Regards
        Praveen R
