Restore EV data

This issue has been solved. See solution.


We are trying to restore a users data (vault) which we had deleted 6 months back
We had a complete backup of EV Partition and sql database
Setup details 6 month back is as follows
EV 9.0.1
sql 2005

Now that partition has closed and we upgrade EV server to 10.0
current setup details
EV 10.0
sql 2005
My question is how we can restore users data which was deleted six months back?

I am planning to follow these two methods Please correct if I am wrong
Also let me know which one is prefered

Method 1
Inatsll EV(9.0.1) -SQL-Exchange-DC in separate network with same name
Restore closed partition (2TB)
Restore all SQL database
Run configuration wizard on EV server and join to the existing site
Export users data in PST format
Is it required to create exchange server?

Method 2
I am not sure about this methos but my question is can I restore this data in the existing prduction setup.

So normally what I would do is in a closed environment that cannot ping the production EV servers or SQL servers or exchange servers

Install EV to a machine and in its hosts file add the DNS alias and netbios machines to point to itself

Then restore the SQL databases to a new SQL server and restore each vault store partition and edit the partitionentrg table to show the new locations

The problem you will have is because of the OSIS and sharing, restoring one closed partition will probably not contain the users data, they could have items shared in other partitions and other vault stores and you will have to restore the entire environments dataset
