Rebuilding existing exchange server...

We had 2 Exchange servers in place.  We transferred everything to one of them and got rid of the other.  Removed it from the domain, etc....

We had the 1 exchange box up and running and it crashed this morning.  We want to go back to the old exchange box.  The pub and priv are still on there dated 5/5.  We want to get exchange installed and running.  Any ideas for something like this?

if the Exchange information is still in the AD then you can install Excahnge using the setup.exe /disasterrecovery switch.
the server name and exchange/OS version need to be the same because the setup would pull the information from AD

Not in AD anymore.  Will have to rebuild exchange and restore to old DB's?

Well then you will have to install exchange using the same ORG and Admin group name. That would be running forestprep and then domainprep and then the exchange install

do you plan to keep the same server name as the name of the crashed server?

"The database files in this store are corrupt"

That is what I get after the rebuild.

I have gotten the Public to mount, but I can not get the priv1.edb to mount.  I get the c1041724 error I put above.

Anyone?
