Restore Exchange 5.5 on 2000 using ArcServe

I've got

- Windows NT 4 Server SP6
- Exchange 5.5 SP3
- ArcServeIT 6.61 with Exchange Agent

I'm trying to restore the Exchange information (database, mailbox...
everything) on another computer.

That computer has

- Windows 2000 Server SP4
- Exchange 2000
- Brighstore ArcServe 9 (build 2020) with Exchange Agent

-------------------

Now the situation: I need to verify that the backup was made correctly
(entirely) in order to confirm the total validity of the backup (to validate
my disaster recovery plan) and to update to SP4.

I tried to find documentation with both Microsoft (for Exchange) and CA (for
ArcServe) on how to do a complete restore but I couldn't find a complete
documentation on what I have to do in my particular situation... only bits
and pieces.  I can't even find out if I can do a restore on the Windows 2000
computer (I guess I could because there is an option for "Exchange 5.5
Administrator" and one for "Migration Wizard").

If you tell me that it's impossible, I'll try to restore my Exchange on
another computer that has the same setup as my NT 4.

Thanks for you insights

Mathieu

Are you serious?

If this 'restore' is for disaster recovery purposes I 
would suggest that everything on the target/recovery 
server be kept the same... OS, Exchange version, Arcserve 
version, names (server, Org, Site)... domain membership, 
service packs etc...

There's some instructions for restoring an Arcserve online 
backup to a recovery server here, if that's all you're 
really needing to do...

You can restore Exchange 5.5 databases only to Exchange 5.5 installation (with
the same SP level).

Interesting about the SP level... is it a general practice on the windows
platform (not only with Exchange 5.5)

Windows SP level (or version for that matter) is not important if you restore
just Exchange databases. Exchange version and SP level should be the same.
