Issue



Mailbox(s) may be missing from the restore selections of a backup set of an Exchange 2007 Information Store (IS) backup using Granular Restore Technology (GRT) to tape media


Cause



When an Exchange Information Store (IS) backup is performed with Backup Exec utilizing the Granular Restore Technology (GRT), and the backup job is written to tape, some Exchange Mailboxes may not appear in the (granular) restore selections.

This may be caused by the difference between the Alias and the objects' LegacyExchangeDN attributes final cn= value.

For example a user's alias was initially "TESTUSER" and later changed to "USERTEST".The object LegacyExchangeDN still shows CN=TESTUSER.
 


Solution




Workaround:

 
Duplicate the Exchange GRT backup to disk.
