You will most likely have to restore your System State.  Do you have a recent full backup?

Please follow the instructions in this KB article:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/258062

Your Exchange databases should be in C:\Program Files\Exchsvr\MDBDATA\ unless you had moved them to another partition.  Please review http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313184 to make sure you have what you need.

Also, if you are using something like UBCD4WIN or another PE disk to access your drive, you should run a complete backup just to make sure you have everything.

Thanks for your answer.
We did save the files that are in the C:\Program Files\Exchsvr\MDBDATA\ directory. Now if we install a new SBS and paste these files in the same new directory, will Exchange recognize the data ?

Hi Jeff,

Hi Jeff,

We eventually managed to boot in "directory services restore mode" on our SBS 2003 server. Is there a way of exporting in a .pst file the existing public contacts, before continuing the troubleshooting ?

thanks for your answer.

Can you connect to the server from a workstation?  If so, just open Outlook and copy what you need into a private folder (.pst).

Otherwise, just make copies of the four Exchange Database files (priv1.edb, priv1.stm, pub1.edb, pub1.stm) and then you can restore those after rebuilding:
