Hi,

I am restoring an Exchange 2003 database and I am getting the above error. I am running Exchage on a cluster and I am initiating the restore from the Netbackup Master server. I have created the Recovery Storage group and attached the datastore to be restored. I have done restores previously for this same datastore which were successfull. However, on this particular backup image, I cannot see the log files and also since I am restoring from an old image, my original storage group is different from the one that is being restored. I tried "Restoring Everything to a Different Location (maintaining existing structure)", but get the same result. Below is the status message;
