Restore of Enterprise Vault in parallel

Created: 05 Dec 2013

 Hi,

We have a situation where 2 user archives have been mistakenly deleted and we need to perform DR in order to export them.

The EV Server and SQL server are both Virtual machines and are backed up using Enterprise Vault Policies in Netbackup 7.5.0.4

We have 5 Policies

Open Partitions with the following Selections

EV_OPEN_PARTITION=Primary Vault Store

EV_OPEN_PARTITION=Journal Partition

EV_FINGERPRINT_DB=Default Upgrade Group

DBS with the following selections

EV_DIR_DB

EV_MONITORING_DB

Indexes with the following selections

EV_INDEX_LOCATIONS=ContosoVault

Closed Partitions with the following Selections

EV_CLOSED_PARTITION=Primary Vault Store

EV_CLOSED_PARTITION=Journal Vault Store

And then a Windows backup of the EV Server with Local drives and system state

My question is, can I restore all of the above to 2 freshly built servers in parallel to my current installation without adverse effects ? When browsing the restore and selecting items for restore the section for "restoring everything to a different location (maintaining existing structure) is greyed out ? Does this mean I will need to arrange downtime of my current server, build two new identical servers and restore to those ?

Thanks for any help
