My exchange server crashed and i do not know the exact site and orginazation unit is and i know that is very importanat. I have full backups with the priv.edb and pub.edb. Can any tell me how to find this info? hopefully it is available in one of the many exchange log files. Also any direction on how best to go about the restore would be great. I have the server back up with the same name and sam database. thanks.

jmoody,

it says it in that link, but i will say it again anyway

your backup software will be able to identify the site name and organization from the tape media

thanks

if you try to start the restore, it should tell you the site name (as you need to select it to restore from)

what software are you using to do the backup/restore?
