  I give. I have read every article here I could find and still can't get this done. I have an Exchange 2000 Server that crashed. Dead. I have a straight file copy of the data directory. Not a backup, a copy. I got a new server, loaded WIndows 2000 Server and Exchange Server. Ran all the updates and copied the ,edb files back to the data directory. I have run eseutil and inisteg until I am blue in the face but can not mount wither the mailbos store or the public store.

   When I try to mount the stores I get the error message below:

An internal processing error has occured. Try Restarting the Exchange System Manager or the Microsoft Exchane Information Store service or both.

It could not e as simple as copying the .edb file back to the data directory and checking their integrity. What am I missing and why can't I do this? Thanks!
