Our mail server has gone down. We back up the mailboxes to tape using Veritas Backup Exec for Windows Server 9.0. We now have a new mail server that we would like to restore the mailboxes to but this server has a different name than the previous server and when running a restore the error message "unable to attach to one of the drives appear". We are desperate.  We cannot rename the new mail server the same as the previous server due to Exchange 2000 configurations issues. Please assist us on this matter.

Do you have brick level backups or just the full store backup?

Ooof.  I believe you need to setup a server with the same computer name, and install Exchange in the same fashion, meaning same drive locations, same SP level, and same Org and Site names.  Then, once Exchange is up, you can do your restore.

I'm not sure if there is an easy way to get around doing this on a computer with a different name.  If you have extra hardware around, I could suggest a funky work-around.

I have just gone through something similar today,

In Veritas ive recieved that message when the remote agent is not installed or not running. If you have it installed, check services to ensure its actually running.
