Our server sbs2003 suffered hard disk failure (single disk only) . I installed a new hard disk a two month old image of the system. It started fine and I manage to restore all my essential data from dat tapes using veritas 10d after running an inventory and catalog on the last tape. I then had to manually connect all the workstations to the restored server as the times were out of sync.
All fine so far except none of the workstations will connect to exchange . Also I created a recovery storgae group and ran a restore on the information store from veritas backup exec 10d which restored my last exchange database files *.edb & *.stm. I tried to restore my public folders and mailboxs but it fails .
I was thinking of re-installing exchange and try to connect the users again and restore the database files. Is this the best route . I need to restore everyone mailbox and a couple of calendars.
Can anyone point me in the right direction ?
