I had a server with server 2003 and exchange 2003. It died. I have the exchange database backed up. I do not have the original server 2003 and exchange 2003 cds. I am being told that you can not buy them anymore.
Anyone have any ideas how I can get a new server up and load my backedup exchange database?
thanks.

Do you happen to have a MSDN or Technet subscription?  If so, you can get it that way.  Reach out to a fellow IT friend and see if they have a copy laying around.  As long as you have your own key, it does not matter where the media came from.

Do you have an open lic or EA with Microsoft?  If so, another means to get the media.
