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 
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.
