I am trying to test the recovery featureso f exchnage.

whats not clear to me is.

i have first storage group up running and working fine.

i have a recovery storage group, which is set to recover mail store unmounted.

so now i run ntbackup, and hit restore mailbox store.

how does it know NOT to over write the working database, and restore its self to the information store.

this is whats confusing me.

cheers for help

When you use Backup or another Exchange-aware backup program to restore databases in Exchange Server 2003, Exchange first determines whether a recovery storage group exists on the designated Exchange server and whether the database selected for restoration is present in the recovery storage group. If it is, Exchange redirects the restored files to the recovery storage group. The backup program remains unaware that restoration has been redirected to the recovery storage group on that server.

If the database to be restored is not in the recovery storage group, restoration ends immediately, even if the database exists in another storage group on the server. As long as the recovery storage group exists, Exchange treats it as if it were the only storage group on the server for restore purposes. If the recovery storage group is not present or has been deleted, Exchange reverts to ordinary restore behavior, and the service does not need to be restarted.
