Moving exchange 2000 into another HD

Lots of fun Shooshi!!

First thing to do is iventory all your primary exchange settings, folders and schemas.

BREAK YOUR MIRROR and:
Make a complete backup on tape of all the data that is contained within those folders, etc.

Now prep your Raid 5 by installing the OS fresh. And then restore your backup to its origional locations. Test your system out on one client connection to make certain everything is working as it should. Could take a couple of days before you are satisfied. Thenstart cutting over your clients to the new server.

-----OR--------

And you may also use ghost and create an image file, then make the appropriate changes when the image file is installed. Then proceed as usual.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Best Regards!!!!

Make your changes to the server name and make sure your addressing schemes and naming conventions are the same.

How to Recover Exchange 5.5 - Troubleshoot Errors.
Exchange 5.5 Disaster Recovery White PaperBy: ***** *****Introduction:This case study is to outline the steps needed to the recovery of a Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 server w/ SP4, which resides upon a Windows NT 4.0 SP6 server and a Blackberry Enterprise Server.Materials needed during this entire installation process, and things you should know before going further.- Know the hardware in the machine that is being used for Exchange; have all the necessary drivers.- In this case, we needed 3 machines.- Exchange Restore Machine w/ Backup Exec.- PDC (Primary Domain Controller) w/ mass storage (80gigs)- BlackBerry Server on NT 4.0- Have the Microsoft Exchange 5.5 Installation Disk and all Exchange Service Pack Disks.- Have all appropriate device drivers.- Have Veritas Backup Exec 8.0 Disks.- Have Sybari Antigen Disks.Disaster Recovery Strategy:Planning is essential to a good recovery. The strategy listed here is one of many different strategies one can take. This is the one I have chosen for our corporation. It has been tested and has been proven successful.When recovering an Exchange 5.5 server, it is absolutely imperative that it has access to the ORIGINAL SAM from the PDC of the original Domain. That said there are three ways one can proceed to ensure that the SAM is available.1. Use an NT Service aware Backup Program like Veritas Backup Exec to backup the PDC’s Registry and SAM.2. Install a temporary BDC and use Symantec Ghost to get an image of the installation.3. Install a permanent BDC on the original domain and store it offsite.I have chosen plan 3. Ideally, make an installation of your new BDC on a laptop. Laptops are portable enough so that if there are any major corporate changes to the Account Database, the laptop c
