Hi,

Is the server completely dead? Do you need to re-install Windows and Exchange? Is the AD working correctly?

See - http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/exchange/2003/library/disrecopgde.mspx

This is a good article if the server is completely crashed and needs a re-build.

This article is probably your best guide then. Try to get a copy of everything off the hard disks before you start messing around it it though.

U can use the disaster recovery option as mentioned above by mass2612 but if a Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server or Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 computer is clustered, you cannot install Exchange 2000 Server or Exchange Server 2003 with the /disasterrecovery switch on an Exchange 2000 Server or Exchange Server 2003 virtual server Active Directory directory service object. In Exchange 2000 Server, the installation may appear to complete successfully, but the results are unpredictable.
