Remount edb file in Exchange Server 2010

Hi experts,

We had a lot of problems with our previous SBS 2011 installation on VmWare. I created a new datastore and installed a new version of SBS 2011 in it. Our IT specialist adviced us to reinstall the server first and then import the mails through the OST files. This doesn't work though because a few people (including my boss) didn't check his mails for more than a few days. So the OST files are not up to date.
I still have the original edb file (and all other files in the folder). Is it possible to remount this ebd file to regain access to all older mails?

Hello,

Yes, you can mount the database on the new server, as long as the new server uses the same organization name of the old server. Full instructions can be found here: http://exchangeserverpro.com/exchange-2010-database-portability-disaster-recovery/
