How do I install Information store services and other exchange services that are unavailable after a disaster recovery of exchange 2000 server
Posted on 2010-01-06
My exchange 2000 server crashed, but however I was able to recover the mdbdata folder (with Priv1.edb, Priv1.stm and the transaction logs). I installed fresh windows 2000 advanced server and MS Exchange 2000 server using Disaster Recovery procedures. I copied back the mdbdata folder with all its contents to the same location as previous. When I opened Exchange System Manager and clicked on the First Storage Group, I got this error message:
The action could not be completed because the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service is unavailable. Be sure the service is running and have network connectivity to the Microsoft Exchange Server computer.
Operation: Retrieving mount information
ID no: c1041721
Exchange System Manager
When I checked Windows Services (Admin Tools>>>Services) I found out the Microsoft Information Store Service and other Microsoft Exchange Services (except Microsoft Exchange Management) were not installed.
Could anyone kindly assist to resolve this issue.
