The DigiScope "Restore Wizard" allows the operator to Restore/Migrate offline data from the Container (Servers/Groups), Database, Mailbox or Folder level to the same or alternate server, mailbox/location, even cross version i.e. 5.5 → 2000 → 2003 → 2007 → 2010 → 2013 → 2016


NOTE 1: The DigiScope "Restore Wizard" process utilizes a Possible Name Matching algorithm  to match source to target and then allows the operator to accept/reject the suggested matches. The operator also has the ability to skip or designate an alternate account for data restoration


NOTE 2: Before restoring/migrating any data you must have Mounted the Offline Sources & Connected to the Production Sources.


NOTE 3: If desired create the appropriate filters to include/exclude specific Mailboxes, Folders, or Items before starting the restore/migration process.
 

Migrating/Restoring a specific mailbox, folder or item

1. Mount the Offline database and ensure you can connect to the target production server via DSAdmin before starting the Restore/Migration.

2. Right click on the mailbox, folder or item you want to Restore/Migrate and select Restore Wizard.

NOTE 1:
Within the example below we are executing an Restore against ALL databases within the "Lucid8 Exchange 2103 Group" container.

3. The Restore process begins, follow the onscreen instructions and for additional information please review the Restore Wizard documentation

NOTE: As you can see in the example above there are actually 6 different containers i.e.
  • Offline (Top of Tree Container that holds all offline objects | the Restore Wizard is NOT available at this level)
  • Lucid8 Demo (Server/Machine Container that holds all Group Containers)
  • And 4 different Group Containers with different versions of Exchange Databases

NOTE: If you were to right click and start your restore from the Lucid8 Demo (Server/Machine Container) it would restore all databases within the four groups under that container.
