ok so what is it exactly you are trying to accomplish here i.e.

1. Are you attempting to recover granular data from an EDB backup into an existing production exchange server with active mailboxes?  If so then you want to look at the information about the Exchange 2010 Recovery databases (RDB) http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee332351.aspx  or do a google search "Export Mailboxes, Folders, & Email Items Directly from Offline Exchange 2010"

2. or are you trying to take that Exchange Database mount it up on an entirely different server in another domain or fenced off replica of your existing Exchange server?  If this is what you are trying to do you will need to ensure the AD information has been replicated as well
