4 4 3:Micro Focus GroupWise Restore
SEP sesam enables you to restore all or only selected parts of your GroupWise system – a domain, a mailbox or a single message. The Micro Focus GroupWise restore is quite similar to a regular file system restore. Restore is triggered from the Menu bar -> Activities -> Restore. Restore wizard guides you through the process of restoring your data. For step-by-step procedure, see Standard Restore Procedure.
Before you begin, check that all prerequisites are met.
SEP sesam Micro Focus client supports path relocation for restored data (check prerequisites). The following options are available after restoring GroupWise to the restore area:
- restore single objects from user mailbox (restore post office to the restore area, user via Groupwise Windows client)
- restore the complete mailbox (restore post office to restore area, administrative recovery by admin via ConsoleOne/AdminConsole)
- restore domains (restore the domain to a temporary folder and use of the required files )
- restore libraries (restore the library directories or databases from post office (for libraries that have their storage in the post office), restore the external storage structure into a temporary directory and use the required files)
|SEP sesam also provides the web Restore Assistant interface (Web UI) which is designed to be more intuitive and offers additional advanced options compared to GUI restore wizard while, on the other hand, it does not support the restore of special tasks types, such as Micro Focus GroupWise, MS SQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, etc. For these task types you can only use the GUI restore wizard to restore your data.|
Restoring Micro Focus GroupWise server
Restore the GroupWise data as a normal file restore into the restore area you have defined in your GroupWise system. Note that you can restore missing objects via the GroupWise Windows client or as an administrator via ConsoleOne. For details, see relevant Micro Focus GroupWise documentation version.
- From the SEP sesam GUI menu bar, select Activities -> Restore. The New Restore Task window opens.
- Select what you want to restore. You can search savesets by task name or by filename or path.
- When searching by task name, use the drop-down list of available tasks and select the one you want to restore from. This option is selected by default.
If you are searching by filename/path, select the option Filename or path in a saveset and enter your search expression in the search pattern field.
- Under the Saved in period drop-down lists, specify the time frame for which you want to conduct the search. Click Next.
- The search results are displayed. From the list of savesets matching your query, click the version you want to restore. Click Next.

|As of v. 4.4.3. Beefalo, the Expert Options button for specifying advanced restore options is only available in the Expert UI mode. It is not available for users that run the GUI in Basic or Advanced mode. In the latter case, if you want to access the Expert Options you first have to change the Basic/Advanced UI mode to Expert, as described in Selecting UI mode.|
|A restore task can be scheduled like any other task. If you want to add a restore task to the schedule, see Scheduling Restore.|
You can view the status of your restore jobs by selecting Job State -> Restores from the Main Selection. Restore overview provides detailed information on the last run of restore jobs, including the task name, status (successful, error, in queue ...), start and stop time of the last backup, data size, throughput, client and message.
