Restore mailboxes with only the edb + stm files

We had a sbs2000 server + Exchange2000. It crashed. The priv1.edb, pub1.edb, pub1.stm and the priv1.stm is all what's left.
I set up a new sbs2000 with the same name. I copied my files to the mdadata. I used eseutil to repair and to check inconsistency, ...
When I try to start mounting the databases it goes to 66% (what 's good) and then it goes to 100%. Thought yes it does it, but it came up with a new error "your database is to new too new to use with the store.exe". I found exactly the same error on th support site of Microsoft but it's always with a content of clustering and we don't have that.

So my question is does anyone know how I could restore all the databases of the exchange so I can mount them and use an exmerge to export them into some pst files? (I have already running an new exchange server so I can put the pst files in the new mailboxes.)

Thanks in advance

Hi BERTLEEMAN,

Make sure that your server has all the same updates and exchange service packs as it did when it died.  What you are trying to do is an offline restore, which is detailed here from MS -> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/296788 - and possibly this - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313184

If you continue to have problems, you will need to use a program like Ontrack's PowerControls - which will extract PST files from the EDB files -> http://www.ontrack.com

Hope that helps,
