%1 (%2) Restore started from directory %3.

Product: Exchange
Event ID: 901
Version: 8.0
Message: %1 (%2) Restore started from directory %3.

This Information event indicates that the online restore process has started. The directory path referenced in the message is the temporary directory that Exchange Server uses to restore log files during an online restore of an Exchange database. The occurrence of this individual event does not indicate a problem if your online restore process completes successfully.

Important   When an online restore process fails, additional ESE Backup events such as 903, 904, and 905 are logged in the Application log. For information about what to do if you notice these additional events, see User Action.
