Requirements for restoring an Exchange database

Contributors netapp-soumikd

Before you restore an Exchange Server database from a SnapCenter Plug-in for Microsoft Exchange Server backup, you must ensure that several requirements are met.

Note To use the restore functionality completely, you must upgrade both SnapCenter Server and SnapCenter Plug-in for Exchange database to 4.6.
  • The Exchange Server must be online and running before you can restore a database.

  • The databases must exist on the Exchange Server.

    Note Restoring deleted databases is not supported.
  • SnapCenter schedules for the database must be suspended.

  • The SnapCenter Server and the SnapCenter Plug-in for Microsoft Exchange Server host must be connected to the primary and secondary storage that contains the backups you want to restore.
