Restoring Microsoft Exchange 2003 on another server with a different name?
Posted on 2007-10-11
Is there any way that I can restore a exchange 2003 backup to another server running exchange enterprise edition (sitting in a workgroup) without renaming the new server to the same name as the old exchange 2003 box? The whole theory behind this is that we want to be able to restore a bunch of our clients exchange backups on this new server in our lab in case a user deletes e-mail that they later realize they need. I'm using enterprise here because I know that it is capable of having multiple stores. From the research that I have done it seems that this can not be done however I wanted to check with you guys before giving up. Is there an easier way of achieving this?
