I have Exchange 5.5 on a Win2K server and during a bad shutdown the IS became corrupted. I am using Backup Exec and have the selections "Microsoft Exchange Public Folders" and "Microsoft Exchange Mailboxes" checked for my backups. I have good backups of those. I did not backup the IS though (I know).
I've ran a repair using eseutil and recovered a lot of data but with a lot of errors. I also have tried running a restore and now people have duplicate emails and some users show having 4 billion unread emails in their inbox.
I've tried creating a recovery server and restoring it to the new install of Exchange but Backup Exec is giving me errors.
On my production server can I rename the MDBDATA folder to OLD, create a new priv.edb and pub.edb and run my restore back to the prod server? Or is it a bit more complicated than that?
Thanks for any help!
