I am having to completely reinstall SBS 2003. Before this, I backed up the Exchange server private and public databases with a view to copy them back in so as to not lose contacts, etc.
Right now the install is asking me for a DNSName. So there's a bit of a rush.
I would like to name the DNSName to something new to avoid some SSL 2-name issues, etc.. Are the .ebd, etc. files "branded" to the old Domain name? Or will I be able to use them even though the name changed.
In fact, even if creating the same User name, I believe that the system will see them as new users. Would that prevent me from getting to that backed up data? Or does the copying over of the backed up files copy over the users as well?
Is there a way to do what I want?
