How to change the default location of the Microsoft Exchange temporary restore location


Solution



The location where the associated log and patch files are to be kept until the database is restored  is the exchange working directory ...\exchsrvr\mdbdata.

The following is a description of the log file replay logic for a single database restore:
The database gets copied to its original location (ESE checks the * Restore.env file for this information) and the log files from tape get copied to the temporary folder specified during the restore operation ("Log Path" box).


To change this for any reason, the following registry changes will need to be made.

The registry key to create is
Hkey_local_machine\Software\Veritas\NetBackup for Microsoft Exchange Server\current version\config

The value to create is REG_SZ EseLogPath and the value should be the desired path where to put the temporary log files,  i.e. C:\Temp.

In the above example the logs files,  when restored, will be restored to C:\Temp and not  ...\exchsrvr\mdbdata.

Note for VERITAS NetBackup 7.1:  This can be done via the GUI. For more details,  have a look at the NetBackup 7.5 for Microsoft Exchange System Administration Guide on  Page 165.
