Another Exchange 2000 Disaster

By gideon ·
Server crashed, AD unrecoverable, I have a offline copy of priv.edb and priv.stm.
I can recreate all mailboxes manually, is there a way for me to get the crashed servers database mounted and working?

I assume you are using Exchange 2000 or 2003.

When AD is unrecoverable (no 2nd DC, no back-up)you will have to configure a brand new AD and configure all users. When thats done, install Exchange 2000/2003. Create new mailboxes for all users. Then copy the offline dBs to the new Exchange server and mount them using Mailbox Recovery Center. Then fill the new mailboxes with the old information from the MRC or using Exmerge. Good luck.

As you are using Exchange 2000, I'm not sure the MRC option is valid. If you have problems with that method, you can try Ontrack Powercontrols - it can read Exchange databases offline.
