The environment is:
Exchange Server 2003 Standard (SP2?)
Initially, Exchange was installed on a single server
A new server has been added to the Exchange organization as the old server was starting to give problems and all mailboxes except one, were moved to the new server
Before I could move the last mailbox or transfer/replicate any of the roles & public folders as per http://support.microsoft.com/kb/822931
the Server crashed and died, and can no longer be revived.
When I access Expand Public Folders, and then try to expand Offline Address Book, (as per kb 822931) I get the following error message
"The operation failed due to an invalid format in the http request. Verify that the host header is correct for the virtual server
ID no: c1030af0
Exchange System Manager"
1. How do I change the new Exchange Server to assume all of the Master Exchange Server roles with the old one being dead?
2. How do I get the last mailbox reconnected to the new Exchange Server (I have a full .pst backup of the mailbox)
( I tried to delete the mailbox from AD User Active Directory Users and Computers Console & Created New Mailbox on the New Server, but I cannot get outlook to verify the user when setting up his profile on outlook)
Urgent assitance will be very much appreciated
