Recovery procedure 4: Copy or move the Enterprise Vault data files

You now need to restore the backups of the Enterprise Vault data files to their locations on the Enterprise Vault servers.

Depending on the original Enterprise Vault components that existed on the servers you are recovering you must restore only the following data files:

  • If you are restoring a server that used to run a Storage service, or a server that is configured in a cluster, you need to restore onto this server the saveset files for any vault stores managed by the original Storage service.

  • If you are restoring a server that used to run an Indexing service, or a server that is configured in a cluster, you need to restore onto this server the indexing data files managed by the original Indexing service.

  • If you are restoring a server that used to run a Shopping service, or a server that is configured in a cluster, you need to restore onto this server the shopping files managed by the original Shopping service.

The Enterprise Vault data should be restored to the locations where they existed on the original servers. For example, if you are recovering the server running the Indexing service and the indexing data was originally stored in the following location:

I:\Indexing

then this indexing data should be restored to the same location on the new server.

To reorganize and move any SQL database devices on the disks, you can perform the procedures as listed in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:

This must be correct before you start any of the Enterprise Vault services, otherwise some cleanup operations may occur, resulting in information loss.
