I have an 2000 Server w/ Exhange 2003, it crashed due to a bad UPS. I do have the currupted Priv1 & Pub1 EDB files, well I have the whole MDBDATA folder.
I do have a brand new server, can I get it up under the previous EXCHANGE name and retore the DB's and everyones emails?. I tried MS Knowledge Base "How to Move Exchange Server 2003 to New Hardware and Keep the Same Server Name" but it failed and now I've already taken the bad server out of the domain.

Extremely urgent

Hi ITmario,

If this is extremely urgent, you have 2 options, both of which cost money.

First, call Microsoft and pay their fee to help you through till the finish.

Second, just build the exchange server and get it working, then extract the data from the edb files directly with PowerControls (http://www.ontrack.com)

Hope that helps,
