restoring exchange to totally different domain name
Posted on 2010-08-30
The domain is SBS2008 (exchange included of course). Backups made using the builtin backup utility. My clients are parting ways, so the business and domain names are chainging. She did not want the option of keeping things as is, but setting up echange to host her new domain\business name, so it will be from scratch. My question is: Will I be able to sucessfully restore the mailboxes to the new domain? The hardware is the same (keeping the current server). I will make sure to create the users the same way I did in the old domain. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated. Hopefully I will be able to do the restore using the builtin backup utility.
