Hi Experts,

I had a old server Name ABC.com which Had Exchange 2007 installed with 40 Users.

The server got crashed and I dont have a working backup.

So i decided not to waste time and make 2 Servers for DC and Exchange. Im setting up a new DC and new domain XYZ.com.

I have the EDB File of the Exchange 2007 of the old crashed server. Will I be able to mount it to the new one and create new users and mount their Usernames to the Mailboxs?

Thanks

This will give you a complete idea about database portability, long story short no you won't be able to mount it.



Your best option is to get an edb to pst software not really cheap though
