Restore pub.edb

I had an Exchange 2000 server crash.  I managed to save the pub.edb and pub.stm files.  I rebuilt new server as Exchange 2003 and I think it has a different Exchange site name then the 2000 server.  I would like to get the data out of the public contact in the those files and bring it into the new Exchange server.  Let me know what detail I need to provide.

Hi tim_mcgue,

You either have to build a machine with all the same names and remount the databases - or - purchase software that lets you extract the data directly

Hope that helps,
