Recover Exchange 2007 (SBS) public folder store.
Posted on 2013-12-31
Hi, I have an SBS 2008 server that died.
After two weeks of ordering parts and reinstalling, i have the server back online and running. There were no good backups of the server. I did manage to pull the EDB files along with the logs from a partly damaged boot drive. I need to get the public folder database online from the old server and get a bunch of contacts and stored email messages out of it. I don't know really how to accomplish this because all of the recovery storage group items seem to deal with the mailbox store.
Here's where I am:
NEW SBS 2008 install, joined to domain using migration mode. Different name than original box.
First Storage group with exchange mailboxes is running. Seems ok.
I created a second storage group and created public folders there just like the old server.
Now I have a 1.5GB Public Folder EDB and logs from the old server boot disk. How do I mount it up and get the data off of it?
