Issue



A redirected restore of Exchange to drive and path fails with: 0xe000848c - Unable to attach to a resource. Make sure that all selected resources exist and are online, and then try again.


Error



0xe000848c - Unable to attach to a resource. Make sure that all selected resources exist and are online, and then try again. If the server or resource no longer exists, remove it from the selection list. Edit the selection list properties, click the View Selection Details tab, and then remove the resource.


Cause



The server specified in the Microsoft Exchange Redirection settings "Restore to Server" field, is not  an Exchange server and does not have the Exchange VSS writer necessary to perform this type of restore.


Solution



In the Microsoft Exchange Redirection restore settings, please enter an Exchange server or a server with the Exchange tools when specifying the server, drive and path. The Exchange VSS writer is used during this type of restore making it is necessary to restore to an Exchange server (or a server with the Exchange tools).
