You would have to get the name of the ORG, AG and server same as it was before.

As you have the copy o fthe DB do you also have the log files. In case they are good and the DB comes to clean shutdown we will have to keep them in the MDBDATA folder and then check the option for "This DB can be overwrtitten by a restore" and good to mount.
