Exchange 2000

By dwarren ·
I am running Exchange 2000. We were the lucky recipients of the w32.SoBig.A@mm. Our Nortons Enterprise Edition caught it but not before it killed the M drive. All the data seems to be intacked but how do I access it to the new M drive? I also have tape backup and can not get it see the new M drive.

Exchange 2000

First, what backup software are you using...? Is this backup software Exchange friendly...? For instance, I use Veritas Backup Exec with the Exchange 2000 agent and this will backup and restore the entire M: drive, all Mailboxes and individual mailboxes if needed. If you backup software supports Exchange 2000, then it should be able to restore the M: drive to the state from the last good backup.

It is possible that you will have to also restore the system state for Microsoft Windows server active directory. This is another whole process that you have to do in Safe Mode and select the Directory Servicdes Restore Mode from the Boot-up Menu ( Hitting F8 before startup).

You can also search Microsoft's knowledge-base by going to

Good Luck !!!
