hi, is there a way to know what is the organization name etc from the exchsrvr folder??? I have a server which blew with no backups but i have this folder  fine and even the database (priv1.edb and pub1.edb) are fine. But I need to install and put these files on the new server but I don't know the info of the old exchange server. I tried  with the default as "first organization" but it won't load the public folder and mailbox. giving error c1041724 and even some error in the event viewer. I know the domain name and the server name from the old server but I think that I need to know the organization name too..

I really need help

sorrry i forgot to ask if u still have ur AD intact or else my post is useless.If yes
u can also use ur ADSIedit and navigate to exchnage server and checkout the name
for ur exchange organization.eithout the AD and just the data i dont think it is
possibel.And yes u need the exchange organization to recover.
If all failed u can go to ontrack.com and look for powercontrols which
will recover the data for u from priv1.edb and pub1.edb .

Problem solved (with a hassle). When you install ms exchange a log file in the c:\ is created and in it there is all the setting implemented during that particular installation.Luckly enough the file was still there on the old hdd of the crashed server so I could retrive the exact detail of the old installation i.e organization name , etc etc... . I installed the windows from scratch and configure both dns and AD and after install Ms exchange. Then I copied the priv.edb and pub1.edb into the mdbdata directory but still no luck. I repair the both DB but although they where good again no luck. THEN I decided to delete the whole content of the  mdbdata and copy the old content INCLUDING the log files (which I don't know how others said that you only require both edb files and that's enough) and as soon as I tried to mount the public folder and the mailbox BUMMM  THEY loaded fine....  Obviously, and I was expecting it, exchange public and mailboxes had a problem with rights and I manged to do that to..


cheers
