Backup Exchange db and wss db to reinstall sbs 2008
Posted on 2010-11-17
I have an SBS 2008 box that I would like to reinstall. (nothing works - totally messed)
However there are a few things that I need help on.
I would like to backup the exchange and wss data in order to move it to the reinstalled sbs box.
Keep in mind - this is only for 7 gb of wss data and 4 exchange mailboxes.
If it's easier to just put the wss data on a thumbdrive and manually get each .pst I don't mind that.
If I go the manual route (each .pst) once I open a mailbox in the new server, can I just import that the same as say a pop .pst?
Also what will happen to my user profiles. All names will be the same, but I get the feeling that doesn't matter. If I connect the computers again to the 'new' (but same named) domain, will each user have multiple domain connections? (c:/users/local...)
If going the manual route is a bad idea and I should just grab the db's, please let me know how to do that. (I have a data partition on the sbs box that I have migrated (through the gui) all data to.
Thanks a lot.
