Exchange 2000 server disaster recovery
Posted on 2007-11-15
We are using Exchange 2000 server with 2 hard disks (C = Windows 2000 OS, D = Exch 2000 and edb).
If first hard disk (C drive) is failure, I should do something like that...
- Replace new hard disk
- Install new Windows 2000 server on C drive again
- And then I should run "Setup.exe /DisasterRecovery" for Exchange server recovery
Now I have a question...
Normally I should fully install Exchange server once again, and restore all mailbox from backup tape.
Becos old edb file is still stored on D drive, can I directly mount back D drive old edb file after run "Setup.exe /DisasterRecovery", is it possible ???
