Microsoft Exchange full or incremental backups created to tape or disk can only natively be restore to an Exchange server.
The EMC Networker ExtractWizard process:
Two options: direct and advanced methods.
The ExtractWizard direct method allows restoration to an alternate hard disk or file system location from tape or disk backup.
The ExtractWizard advanced method for Networker, using the locally installed Networker agent, will make API calls to the Networker server and return the possible restore points for the identified Exchange client.
Specific backups (full/incremental) can then be selected for restore.
The EDB and log files will be restored without being mounted.
These files are then ready to be opened with ItemPoint.
The Symantec Backup Exec ExtractWizard process:
Similar to Networker, the ExtractWizard direct method allows restoration to an alternate hard disk or file system location from tape or disk backup.
The ExtractWizard advanced method for Symantec Backup Exec uses an emulation process to provide an alternate location for redirecting an Exchange restore with the Backup Exec software.
This method will initiate the restore to an alternate hard drive location without requiring it to be an Exchange server.
It will restore the EDB and log files without being mounted.
These files are now ready to be opened with ItemPoint.
The ExtractWizards will not restore RM LUNs backups from Symantec or EMC Networker.
The customer will have to follow the standard procedures to restore prior to presenting the data to ItemPoint.
