I now am trying to restore the data to an offsite server (different than original) and I am unsuccessful so far in doing it. The restore runs for 1 second than fails and tells me to check event viewer. When I check event viewer I only see even id 8019 that tells me to check the restore log, which the restore log tells me to check event viewer. and event id 8003 with says End Restore to \servername\First storage group failed.
Consult the backup log for more detail.
Either way the backup log and event viewer are unhelpful. I also made sure that in exhange manager I enabled the databases to be restored over.
Anyone have any ideas?
