    Exchange 5.5 Disaster Recovery


    by john.campbell ·

    I am currently recovering an Exchange 5.5 (SP4) server using Arcserve 2000 (SP5).
    I have rebuilt a stand alone server and recreated the organization and site names as per the original server.
    I have successfully done this many times in the past, but this time I get a E3051 No Database Seesions Found error each time I try to restore the information store.
    I have merged the tape, scanned the tape and the information store is there albeit spread over 2 tapes.

    Has anyone come across this problem? Anyone got a solution?

      Are you actually sure that the Data is there and not just the headers for the files? I’ve seen a few Tap Backup units fail like this over the years. It always happens when the company who uses the tape doesn’t actually confirm that the tape has been written to and not just the headers applied.
