I have an SBS that got eaten alive by a virus. (I met the client afterwards...) I feel its beyond any fix and repair. Security policies cant be defined. DNS is wacky. I didnt do the install and I hate cleaning other peoples messes. I would like to just format it and start over. Its a small 5 man shop so resetting permissions and shares is easy. However whats the best way to move exchange? Also if I keep the same domain name and server name will I be able to reconnect the computers without logging them out of the old domain and then back in?
Right now they use the MS POP connector and Exchange mailboxes. I'm a bit scared of orphan osts. etc.
Any tips/ideas would be great.
