Restore Exchange 2003 Database on SBS 2003
Posted on 2004-10-16
I have a SBS 2003 server. The OS etc is installed on the C drive. The Exchange server system files and database are installed on D drive.
My D drive has died and I have replaced it - the C drive is still in tact so the system boots OK.
I have a backup of the exchange data base with ntbackup, but don't have a wholesale backup of the D:.
Can someone please advise of a step by step process I need to follow? I think I will need to do the following:
Reinstall Exchange 2003 from the SBS cd to the original location.
Retore the database with ntbackup to the original location.
I understand that the configuration is stored in the Active Directory, so think that the above should be enough. Am I correct?
Thanks in advace for your advice.
