Restoring Database

Hi,

One of our mailservers is experiencing big problems with hardware and is currently unavailable.

Is it possible to build another exchange server with a different name (using the disaster recovery switch) and restore the databases from the faulty server to it?

I have instructions on how to do this but am just worried about the server having a different name.

Thanks for your help,

Jamie

You've proably read this but

Basically mate you can move/resore the Exchange DB to a different server - with a different name.  You need to ensure that the servers are thesame version of Exchange and that are in the same administrative group. There are extra steps detailed in the link above but you need not worry about the name issue

Hope that helps
