product usage
Product Usage
  • Designed to run from a Windows workstation
  • Microsoft Outlook® must be installed, configured for Corporate/Workgroup, and closed at the time of operation
  • Uses Microsoft’s Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI) to communicate with theExchange Server
  • MAPI is configured when Outlook logs into an Exchange Server mailbox for the first time
  • Information Store files (EDB, STM and log) must be off-line and out of the MDBDATA directory since Exchange can conflict with Ontrack PowerControls use of MAPI
Ontrack PowerControls Extract Wizard
  • Extract Wizard facilitates the restoration of the Information Store from a backup tape or archive file to a local share, without the need of an Exchange Recovery Server.
  • ExtractWizard currently supports Microsoft NT-native backup,Symantec BackupExec, VERITAS NetBackup, CA ARCserve, EMC NetWorker, IBM Tivoli, HP OpenView, CommVault Galaxy, and UltraBac.
  • The Direct Method does not use the backup server software so has limited support for tape libraries and robots, requiring manual control. Tape drives typically operate best if used with Manufacturer or Vendor drivers.
  • The Advanced Method works as a client for your backup solution server to support your tape drive devices and existing catalogs.
How does it work?

1 - Backup software backs up an Exchange database and creates Exchange backup sets.

2 - Extract Wizard restores the database to an alternate location that is not an Exchange server.

3 – Open an EDB filewith Ontrack PowerControls to view and search through PST files or mailboxes, messages and attachments.

4 - Ontrack PowerControls can restore a single mailbox, messages or attachments back to the production Exchange server or to a new or existing PST file in another location.

The Direct Method needs no backup software.

TheAdvanced Method uses a form of emulation for the backup solution to use its catalogs and tape devices.

Advanced Extraction Method

In Advanced Method, the PC running Extract Wizard emulates an Exchange Recovery Server for a redirected restore using your backup solution server.

In Direct Method, Extract Wizard talks directly to the tape drive.

From the Extraction Source screen you can select a tape drive, backup archive or a previous ExtractWizard cataloged backup

After cataloging, the ExtractWizard displays the Exchange Information Store files available

The catalog file can be saved for later use saving the time needed to catalog the tape

source selection
Source Selection

Ontrack PowerControls Source Selection dialog allows you choose EDB, PST or CAS files as a source, if the optional “PST as Source” or “Content Analysis Store” agents are enabled. The EDB database and it’s log files can reside in separate folders.

Ontrack PowerControls does not modify the source files.

The transactions still in the log files are accommodated through the temporary files generated at “Temporary File Path”

target selection

content analysis store
Content Analysis Store
  • Content analysis store (CAS) allows you to automate and save searches
      • Use any number of Exchange sources, including multiple EDBs.
  • After creating a CAS container, create profile folders as subfolders to the CAS
      • Each profile folder is configured with search criteria such as, From, To, Subject, etc.
      • Messages matching the criteria will be contained in that profile.
      • Allows you to make many separate searches (profiles) for the same set of sources
  • After processing is complete, open the CAS as a source
      • Allows you to copy the data out of the CAS into PSTs or to an Exchange server mailbox.
command line operation

    • Opening a source data store to copy a mailbox to a PST file or a mailbox on a live Exchange Server; or
    • Exporting messages as MSG or TXT files; or
    • Listing EDB mailbox names.
  • Product can be configured to open a data store and copy messages to root level, mailbox level or folder level to either mailboxes on a live Exchange server or to .PST files from a command prompt
  • Ontrack PowerControls has a List function at a command prompt that will generate a list of mailboxes from the source data store
message views
