Hi,
I'm trying to restore Exchange 2k3 onto a new server. When installing a blank exchange on a new server i'm only being asked to name Organization, not the OU, which after install is completed, apparently takes a default name of ""first administrative group". My original exchange has a different OU, so i can't mount restored store. Any help would be appreciated!

you need to first install only the exchange management tools
after that create the Administrative Group that you want to create
then run the exchange setup again and install the remaining part
when you do that it would prompt you to select the name of the administrative group (since now you have two groups)
