Exchange server mailbox location in Active Directory

I have an old exchange server that suddenly crashed and required us to set up a new server. We have not restored any of the old info, but we have set up most of the mailboxes and public folders on new box. However, one issue I noticed - some user's mailbox location in the ADC is still pointing to the old server. Does anyone have any info or an article on have to change this. I suspect It can be done using ADSI. Both servers are Exchange 2003. Also, is there a way to merge public folders. In other words, merge old info with the new info.

thank you

Hi,
There is a parameter "homeMDB" & homeMTA
" msExchHomeServerName
represent the exchange server where the user is having a mailbox.This can be changed to point it to the new server.But make sure that a mialbox for this user is created on the new server.
PUBLIC folders can be restored in an isolated environment then merged into the new server.
I ASSUME THAT THE OLD SERVER IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE ON THE NETWORK.
What you implemented is not a support method of disaster recovery.Anyways,since you have already done.I suggested the above for you.
