Restore Exchange 2003

Hello Experts,

I need some assistance and advice on how to restore Exchange 2003 from NTBACKUP.  We currently backup the Exchange Information Store using NTBACK UP everyday, however, I need to know in case of an absolute catastrophe (i.e. the current server dies) on how to restore this NTBACKUP and have the exchange server running again

I believe for the restore I need to get the new server running with Exchange 2003 and then use Restore option to get the Exchange Informaton store online and mount this, however, I guess there will be more to this than just restoring and will appreciate any responses and solutions in regards to this.

To check the restoration, you can use the same server and test Database recovery using Recovery Storage Group using above steps given by JBond2010.

Thanks JBond2010 and viralrathod for your comments, however, one question is that the article mentions "if the exchange server is still functional after a disaster" BUT what if I have lost the entire server and need to start from scratch.. in that case I believe i will install the server + Exchange and then move ahead with the restoration mentioned in the arrticle? Is that correct or will something else be required?

Viral RathodConsultantCommented:
Yes you are correct ,if you have lost the entire server then you need to Manually install Windows Server 2003 ,
Restore 'System State' and need to restore the Exchange server mentioned in the arrticle.

If you need any additional information, please feel free to get back to us. We would be glad to assist you further.
