I have a crashed Windows 2008 SBS server. I can not recover the AD but have the partition with the EDB STM files. I need to get the Mailbox Database mounted on another server so I can export the Mailboxes it contains into EDB. What are the steps?

Is it just a matter of using the Recovery Storage Group?

That would be great, however the original organization and Active Directory are gone. The server is lost with no recovery method available. All I have is the Exchange Mailbox Store. I will build a temporary Environment to recover with, AD Server and Re-install Exchange 2007. The details of the original AD Domain and Org are unknown. Domain name, etc.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

As mentioned in article

 "In Exchange 2007 only one restriction is there.

•Database should be moved to server which is in same Exchange Organization.

I don't think you can complete this. You may looking for third party tool which can extract the data from mailbox store to PST format then later import it back to newly exchange 2007 org.
