We had a single domain controller running exchange 2003 that died completely. I have a backup but for some reason the system did not restore correctly but the priv1.edb and the public folder mail file survived. Now I need to restore this to a new exchange server running on a different machine with a different domain. Is there a tool that will allow me to mount this mail store and restore the mailboxes? I was hoping it would be an easy task but that is for sure not the case.
So in short I have a new exchange 2003 server ready to accept mailboxes and a good priv1.edb file that shows as a clean shutdown so it is in good shape ready to be restored. Now I just need the glue.
