How can I recover Exchange mailboxes from a non-functional Exchange Server?
Posted on 2009-04-28
I have a customer with a Windows 2K3 SBS SP2 that has a corrupt active directory database. All attempts to recover/repair the database have failed, and the customer has no backup of the system state. The decision was made to rebuild the server, but I want to see if I can recover the Exchange data. Since I cannot start the Exchange server, is there any way to extract the mailbox information so I can port it over once the server has been rebuilt? I have tried some of the utilities that allow exporting the data, but they require Exchange to be running.
Any help with this?
