Hello Experts.

I lost my AD and cannot recover it.
Is it possible and how to attach/mount/import an Exchange 2013 database (.edb) to a new infrastructure?
Thanks for any advice and help

Not easily.
If you can rebuild the replacement domain with identical names to the others you might be able to mount the database to extract the content in to another database. It isn't something I have done with Exchange 2013 yet. If this is a live production system though I would suggest speaking to Microsoft.

Simon.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

You need to take care of few things

1. Exchange Org Name should be same as earlier
2. Exchange should be same or higher version

After many unsuccessful tries to work directly form the .edb file, I purchased a tool to convert .edb to .pst
Thanks all for advices
