Please Help! Exchange 2003 disaster recovery with no pevious system state information.
Posted on 2011-03-25
Hello, I have just lived through the following scenario.
1. During server maintenance our domain controller/exchange server crashed due to both drives on the RAID 1 failing during reboot. The exchange databases were stored in a seperate logical drive RAID 5 which is still in tact. I also have a Backup-Exec 12.5 backup available on tape but I understand that is not useful without the system state information from the old installation.
2. I now have a fresh install of Windows 2003 and Exchange server 2003. I have re-created all user accounts in Active Directory and added Exchange email accounts for them.
The qustion is, How can I get the data from the old exchange information store into the new information store without the Active Directory information from the crashed installation?
