recovery of Exchange 2000 Public Folder Stores--500 points
Posted on 2006-11-21
I recently had to backup, take down, reinstall and restore an Exchange 2000 installation for a client of mine. Everything is working fine now (after hours and hours of pulling my hair our), except for their original Public Folders, one of which is very important. Their Global Contact List. Somehow in the backup stage of the reinstall process, the .STM file of the Public Folder store didn't replicate properly, and so now I am stuck with just the .EDB file of the original store. I need to get their contacts back online, one way or another, and was wondering what I can do with this .EDB file. Can I just drop it on top of the current installation's Public Folder store's .EDB file? Can I somehow use a utility to recreate it's sister .STM file? Can I open it up to at least view all of the contact information and then re-enter it manually?
Any and all advice/suggestions appreciated.
500 points to whoever can help me figure this one out.
