Hello,

We have Exchange 2007 SP3 database and log files. The server was hit with a virus and will not respond. We do not have a good backup of the server OS and exchange 2007 applicaiton, but the database and log files are on a SAN and are available.

We have exchange 2010 sp1 and exchange 2007 running. I would like to connect the exchange 2007 database and logs to an exchange 2010 sp1 server. Is that possiable. Or do I need to build a new exchange 2007 server and restore the logs and database there.

We would like to have only exchange 2010 severs. Can someone please point me in the right direction.

no it is not possible, there is no database portability between different versions of exchange you will need to reinstall exchange 2007 using the /recoverserver switch no backup needed
