Can I recover an Exchange 2003 database (SBS) to a newly created Exchange 2003 server (non-SBS)?
Posted on 2008-09-29
We recently acquired a small company, however, we did not acquire its server equipment. I was provided the domain name, the server name, and the priv1.edb, priv1.stm, pub1.edb and pub1.stm files, that was it.
I need to get the emails from this database. Hence with no AD backup, I cannot utilize the ExMerge utility (which would be the ideal scenario).
Originally this was all on a SBS Server. I have created a test domain, in our environment, using the previous company's domain name and have named the Exchange Server the same as the SBS server's name was. When I go to mount the database, I get an error C1041724. The Information Store service does start and the System Attendant service does start. In the APplication log, I get Event ID #9175 Source:MSExchangeSA (stating the Exchange Server is not available). Can anyone provide any guidance?
