Restore deleted mailbox with RSG in exchange 2003
Posted on 2009-04-10
I am restoring a deleted mailbox where the mailbox retention period has passed more than 30 days but the user account in AD stil exist, so i have restored the mailbox store from my backup into Recovery Storage Group. I can now see that mailbox listed under store in recovery storage group, however now when i use EXMERGE to extract the mailbox from recovery storage group into my orginal storage group i get error message in the exmerge.log
And that error is related to the msexchmailboxguid which has been changed. Now i understand that i have to convert the msexchmailboxguid into hex and then replace it using ADSI and then when i will use exmerge it will be OK.
So now i have converted guid into Hex but can you tell me what are the steps for chaning the guid through ADSI. I have never used ADSI so i want to know the steps. Or if you can tell me after converting guid into hex what then i have to do to fix the issue. Thanks
