Restoring Exchange 2007 database to new server avoiding any conflict with original Exchange or AD
Posted on 2015-02-13
I have a perfectly working Exchange 2007 database that needs to stay online and working.
I need to recover some emails from an old backup of this database accomplishing these aims
*Restore the database on a NEW server.
*Absolutely NO conflicts with AD or the current Exchange environment
I know it may sound strange but can I restore the database to a server in a workgroup (not on the domain) and find the emails I need? If the server is in a workgroup then I cannot associate an AD account with the mailbox I am trying to restore.
