How to move Exchange Databases from Exchange 2003 to another Exchange 2003?

Do you need to change the path in HomeMDB attributes manually?

Is there any others users attributes to change in AD after the move?

This is the coolest article I have seen for recovery of a server with exchange. . IF all you have it the database, you can use ldife script (included) to recreate the users and then recover the database. this link is a keeper:

http://www.msexchange.org/articles_tutorials/exchange-server-2007/high-availability-recovery/generating-active-directory-accounts-exchange-database-part1.html

The bottom line is you just go through the steps:

0.Create the Active Directory Domain.
0.Create the Exchange Server infrastructure.
0.Mount the old database.
0.Create a list of disconnected mailboxes on an LDF file.
0.Use this newly created LDF file to create Active Directory accounts.
0.Match the new users created with the disconnected mailboxes.

Happy computing

That article applies to Exchange 2007. Is there any thing for Exchange 2003?

The first question I have is:
Why do you need to move the database? Normal procedure would be to move the mailboxes to the other server not the database.

You can dismount the store on one Exchange server & manually copy the database to other Exchange server.Then you can changed the path in Activedirectory.
Go to Adsiedit.msc
1.Change attribute "MSexch Edb" (Edb file)file path to point to new server on properties of Mailbox store
2.Change attribute "MSexch Slv" (Stm file)file path to point to new server on properties of Mailbox store
