Can't do a GRT restore from disk backup of emails

Created: 05 Dec 2012 • Updated: 06 Dec 2012 | 2 comments


I am using BackupExec 2012 SBE on Small Business Server 2011. I would like to do a restore for some emails of an exchange account. Backups are stored on a iscsi qnap nas storage. I have created a restore task, selected the emails which should be restored to an existing account. After starting the task it fails and kills backupexec windows agent service.

Error log says: [fsys\mb2] - OPEN DATABASE FAILED: -1090 This instance cannot be used because it encountered a fatal error.

I really don't know what to do. I tried the support check tool too but nothing resolve it.
