A PDC and a DC running an internal domain.
The DC had Exchange 2000 server (on a separate partition) which dived.
I built a second DC and did a disaster recovery which worked. I backed up the information store.
I then rebuilt the first DC, but it refused to restore the backup (from the 2nd DC) after disaster recovery.
Now the PDC has also bombed, and I'm having to rebuild it since restores of system state are not working.
Given that the entire domain, including Active Directory, has had to be rebuilt from scratch, is it still possible to recover the information store?
More info on request... sorry, but E2K is not my forte and I'm beginning to wish I'd never installed the thing tin the first place...
