  • Mass Recall using command line
    Posted: 05-05-2016, 9:10 AM

    This is Simpana 10.

    I am trying to recover everything archived from an Exchange mailbox, using the CVRecallMailbox command line tool.

    I am logged on as a Domain Admin, to the proxy server where the mailbox archiver agent is installed. I have made sure that both my user account, and the service account that runs backups, have Full Access to the user's mailbox.

    My input file looks like this:,"Inbox\Folder Name"

    [NB I have tried it without the quotes too]

    My command line looks like this:

    c:\program Files\CommVault\Simpana\Base>cvrecallmailbox.exe outlook -f c:\input.txt 8402

    Every run fails with this error:

    Processing Mailbox of, Directory: Inbox\Folder Name , Recall Destination: In Place Recall
    Error opening mailbox
    Total number of stubs selected for recall: 0, total size: 0
    Did not find restore manager object
    Recall completed ...

    The same message is seen in CVRecallMailbox_failure.log and also in CvRecallMailbox.log

    Is this a permissions error? (I thought I had covered that..)

    Or if not that, what?

    I have discovered that the mailboxes concerned were archived without stubs, so the command line program is not going to work.

    I am back to using the GUI.

    I have other difficulties with the GUI but I will mark this thread as answered and raise another one for the other problems.
