After restoring the CommServe database, you must test client restore operations on the recovered CommServe host. For testing purposes, you can choose a subset of clients that represent each data type being backed up in the CommCell. For example, select an Exchange Server client for Exchange data type backups, a SQL Server client for SQL data type backups, and so on.
Perform restore operations from the clients in the 'Test Failover Client Group'.
The restore operation ensures that the data backed up using the original production CommServe host is still accessible and retrievable. Depending on the client used for testing, perform a basic restore operation. For example, to restore existing Windows File System client data, see .Perform a Restore.
Optionally, install new application agents on virtual machine clients and point them to the test CommServe host.
Perform cross-machine restores from the production clients to the new application client to ensure that the data gets restored.
