Restoring Mailboxes, Mailbox Items, or Messages Out of Place Using Exchange Mailbox

Applies to: User Mailbox, and Journal Mailbox

By default, data is restored to the client computer from which it originated. This is referred to as an in-place restore. However, you can restore data to a different folder on the same Exchange Mailbox server from which data is backed up, or you can restore data to a different Exchange Mailbox server.

When you restore data to a different Exchange Mailbox server:

  • The source and destination server must reside in the same CommCell environment.
  • The destination server must have the application installed on it.
  • If a mailbox is selected as the out-of-place destination, all the selected messages are restored to the Inbox of that specific mailbox.
  • If a folder is selected as the out-of-place destination, all the selected messages are restored to that specific folder in the mailbox.

When you perform an out-of-place restore, the restored data inherits the rights (that is, permissions) of the parent directory.

Procedure

  1. In the navigation pane, expand Solutions > Exchange, and then click the Exchange_Mailbox_server.
