I have a clean backup of my clients Exchange 2003 databases using NTBACKUP.
I needed to rebuild their SBS 2003 due to domain name changes and other reorganization of the company.
I read up on restoring exchange to a new server and the one thing that was stated was the Org name had to be the same.
I made sure that they matched. The server name is not the same as it was prior.
Old Server Name: Server2003
New Server Name: SBS2003-1
When I run NTbackup to restore the exhange DB I try to point the restore to another server, but When I click on Browse nothing is found.
Here us the error in the EventViewer:
