Exchange Server 2003 Configuration Export

I have a sick Exchange 2003 server that might go down at any moment.  Is there a quick way to grab the server's configuration?  I need store info, policies, etc...

I don't think there is.  You can (and should) back up the mailstore.  The other exchange config is in active directory and will probably be included in a system state backup.  You should have at least these components backed up in case you need to restore the server

There is the Sydi project which can get some information.

If you have a separate domain controller and a backup of the information store, then you can easily recover the data to the last backup.

You haven't said why your Exchange server is sick but if it is beacuse of hardware problems and you may be replacing the hardware I would do this now.  Build a new exchange server and make it a meber of the organisation, then move the mailstores to the new server.  If the current server fails it is unlikely that you will be able to restore any backups to new hardware.

There is nothing that you could do to capture the configuration into a document - apart from doing it by hand. It is always best practice to have something important like exchange documented anyway. If you only have one server there wont be massive loads to document anyway.
