Object Recovery Wizard for Microsoft Exchange: Recovery Method

On the Recovery Method page, select the Exchange Server you want to recover to and provide authentication information:

  • Recovery server: From the drop-down list, select the Exchange Server instance to which the objects must be recovered. The original VM is selected by default. The selection functionality lets you switch views to display the platform where the required VM resides: VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Amazon EC2, Nutanix AHV, or a physical machine. You can also search for the VM by its name. You can skip this parameter altogether and enter the VM’s IP address manually in the next field.


    • Selecting a different recovery server or entering the IP address of a different server may be blocked in case the user has insufficient permissions.

    • Servers added using Direct Connect are not supported.

  • Server IP address: Displays the automatically detected IP address of the server to which the objects must be recovered. You'll need to enter the IP address of the recovery server manually if autodetection fails or if you did not select anything in the previous parameter.

  • Use custom SSH port (for Linux objects only): Put a checkmark and enter the port number to be used for SSH connection. When the Use custom SSH port  checkbox is not checked, the default value is used for SSH connections.

  • Credentials type: Choose your preferred option and enter your respective credentials:
    • Password: Enter a username with administrative privileges for the file share entered above and your password.

    • Private key: Select your private key from the drop-down list.

  • Test Connection: Click this button to verify the credentials. You won’t be able to proceed until after the connection has been successfully established.

    • Click Next to proceed to the next step.

      To download items to a browser or forward them via email, enable the system.exchange.enable.direct.recovery setting in the Expert tab. Note that contacts and calendar items will not be recoverable with this enabled setting.
