Exchange Restore failing
After around 20 attempts to restore a mailbox I need help
Whenever I attempt the restore, it pulls all the EDB files off tape and then fails with the error
Restore 00018 -- The job failed with the following error: 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.
I've now duplicated the backup set to disk, so no need for the tape, but still the same error, just 18hours sooner!!
Exchange server is clustered, but it makes no difference if I use the Physical server name or the Virtual name
Resource Credentials test passes, with 'successful - used server credentials'. i've tried the various suggestions that the KB article in the error message suggests (V-79-57344-33932) but still no joy
Version used was originally v12, and I've upgrade to 12.5 in an attempt to get around the 'cluster issue'
Anybody got any thoughts on how I can fix this?
