Planning to re-install a failing exchange 2007 server - advice needed
Posted on 2014-10-25
I have a failing exchange 2007 that has defied all attempts to resolve.
I plan to use re-install exchange 2007 and import the mailboxes.
Can anyone advise on good walk through for this.
Any comments and advice that would be helpful would be appreciated
What is the best practice for removing Exchange 2007 from the member server and keeping the mail database intact.
Do I need to make any changes on the DC/DNS servers before re-installing exchange
As I am re-installing Exchange do I just follow the normal installtion steps.
What is the best method for moving the mailboxes to the new Exchange database ( 15-20 mailboxes, 51GB total)
Would it be better to install onto a entirely new server - I have a Server 2008 machine I could use.
DC is on server 2003
exchange is on server 2008
small, simple setup for a small business
All comments appreciated
