How to Recover an exchange server using edb flat files
Posted on 2007-11-21
I have been approached to resolve this problem and wonder if you can help. (I cringe when telling this story, as there are IT people out there, who implement this!!)
An exchange 2003 Server (SBS03) had its only hard drive fail, and further investigation shows backups on DAT tapes weren't working.
Anyway, data recovery has been made on the failing HD and I have been able to recover the edb and stm files.
Whilst the server as been rebuild with a proper configuration, the server name and org name has changed, therefore, i am unable to work out how i'm going to "mount" these databases.
I have considered creating a recovery storage group, though as i have no store to mount the files into, unless i've done something wrong, i can't do that.
Any urgent help would be required.
