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.

  • 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.

  • Username: Enter the username to log in to the VM.

  • Password: Enter the password to log in to the VM.

  • 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.
