Reconnect mailboxes to AD accounts with different SIDs after Exchange 2003 restore
Posted on 2004-08-19
We have a Disaster Recovery site which has been set up as a very basic environment for our users to log into in the event of an emergency. The people who set it up created an AD domain and put all our users in that domain (only about 90 people) maunually, with the effect of the DR user accounts having different SIDs to the production user accounts.
I have just finished installing Exchange 2003 in the DR site, and have restored our mail stores successfully on the DR server. The problem that I now have is that although I have 90 mailboxes and 90 AD accounts with matching names, I don't have matching SIDs. If I right click each mailbox and choose Reconnect I can match the user to the mailbox no problem but I would like to know if there's a way to match these accounts up automatically just by the names....
Is this possible?
