When trying to mount the exchange stores, I am getting an event ID 1088. it reads as follows;

The information store could not be loaded because the distinguished name (DN) /O=FIRST ORGANIZATION/OU=FIRST ADMINISTRATIVE GROUP/CN=RECIPIENTS/CN= of message database "First Storage Group\Mailbox Store (BRAIN)" does not match the DN of directory /O=FIRST ORGANIZATION/OU=FIRST ADMINISTRATIVE GROUP/CN=RECIPIENTS/CN=/CN=RECIPIENTS/CN=/CN=RECIPIENTS/CN=.

 The database may have been restored to a computer that is in an organization or site different than the original database.

Please note the extra "=/CN=RECIPIENTS/CN=" in the DN of the directory.  I cannot fiure out how to get rid of them.  LegacyDN does not seem to effect it at all.  

Hopefully, this is a simple fix.  Thanks for the help.

Can you tell us a little bit of history of the problem?
Are you trying to restore db to different/reinstalled server?

Doing a swing migration (sbsmigration.com) SBS2003 to SBS2003 same hardware, trying to forklift the exchange stores ( which I have done in the past) and got the above error.

Same Domain,Server, Organization,and Organizational Unit.  Just get an extra "=/CN=RECIPIENTS/CN=/CN=" in the directory of the new server for some reason.

SBS2003 to SBS2003 on same HW?
Sorry, I'm not familiar with sbsmigration.com procedure.
Most probably you don't have old sever anymore to check differences in configuration/services/msexchange/yourdomian/administrative groups/... using adsiedit.msc

I don't have the old server, but I do have AD from the old server.  That is part of the procedure.  I can get to configuration/services/Microsoft Exchange and see "First Organisation" and below that I see Administrative Groups and FIRST ADMINISTRATIVE GROUP, but don't know where to look after that.

OK, so I found the LegacyExchangeDN (which wasn't populated before I swear I checked it) and it had the duplicate "=/CN=RECIPIENTS/CN=/CN=" in there.  So I removed one, rebooted,  and now I get the same 1088 error, but now have THREE "=/CN=RECIPIENTS/CN=/CN=" in the message.  WTF!

The more I mess with it the more ""=/CN=RECIPIENTS/CN=/CN=" 's I get.  Up to 4 now!

Reinstalling Exchange Now.  For the third time.
