Is it possible to install exchange 2003 in a non active directory site?

By SteveJB ·
We need to restore a public folder (E2k3)

The backups of Public folders are done with Backup Exec 11D onto BackupToDisk first then onto tapes.

The BackupToDisk media has since been overwritten so we have to get it from the tape

It's been suggested to build a new exchange server, restore the public folder database to it, create a mailbox, open the public folder with a test account then export it to pst and import the pst into a production mailbox and restore the public folder. However I've been told to install Exchange without connecting it to Active Directory. Is this possible?

You restore from the backup and mount the public folder store to you current exchange server. I believe you can mount it in a "recovery" mode. Restore what you need then disconnect it. Just a thought.
