Restore Exchange 2003
Posted on 2009-02-10
We had a server crash, 2 of the Raid 5 drives went offline. After a scrub everything is back though data was lost. I have reinstalled Windows 2003 Ent, exchange 2003 and all service packs. I was able to copy the priv1 & pub1.edb databases and accompaning stm files to a safe location. Server is currently at SP2 on both the OS and exchange. I did a hard recovery of the database files and now they show to be ok. I can create new blank mailbox stores on the server. Here is where I am stuck!
How do I re-create the aprox 125 mailboxes that did exist and get the repaired databases files back in use so email is back online? Is there a command that will lok at my AD and recreate them based on settings for the users?
We lost our .pst files that were created a few days ago so emerge I doubt is usefull.
If more information is needed PLEASE let me know and I'll do my best. This is day 2 of outage and begining to cause major issues.
Thanks in advance to all who help.
