Hi Jos1982_NL, thanks for your reply.
In my situation, the "source" is a client that has the "Exchange Mailbox Archiver" iDataAgent on it that was used to archive exchange mailboxes that resided on it. The "target" is a client that has the "Exchange Mailbox" iDataAgent on it that I'd like to retore the archived items to.
So in answer to your questions:-
1. Is this the restore inteded to go to the same or a different Exchange environment?
Answer:- The restore is intended to go to the target client.
2. If different, is it the same Exchange version or different?
Answer:- I'm not sure what version of Exchange was running on the source, but the target client is running Exchange 2013.
3. Does the source environment and the target environment have the same OS version?
Answer:- The source client is Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition. The target client is Windows 2012 R2 Standard Edition.
However for the purposes of performing restores (which is all I'm trying to do here), I would have thought that it should not matter what OS is on the source. In fact, the source server may not even exist on the network anymore. I am wanting to restore archived items which are located on the MediaAgent's disklibrary to my target Exchange server client. The source server's client object and all its backupsets and subclients still exist in Commvault. As mentioned above, the source server had the "Exchange Mailbox Archiver" iDataAgent on it (which is where I'm running the Browse & Restore from) but the target server has the "Exchange Mailbox" iDataAgent on it and my Commvault system will not let me install the "Exchange Mailbox Archiver" iDataAgent onto the target. When I try performing a restore, my target client does not appear on the drop-down list of clients that I can target the restore to and I think it's because my target doesn't have the "Exchange Mailbox Archiver" iDataAgent on it. Am I right? If so, how will I be able to restore the archived items onto the target?
Hope this makes sense?
