Got a call from an old client that let me go for a cheaper company about a year ago. Their Exchange server went down in a pile of ashes and don't have a backup. Basically the OS got hosed totally. I was able to salvage the mailbox DB folder. out of it. The Exchange was running on a Hyper-V host. I've never used the "recoverserver" option before so looking for some guidance.
I know the command is "setup /m:recoverserver" , but this installs to the default C:\ and the original was on the D:\
Should the command be "setup /m:recover server /targetDir:"D:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange\V14" to get it to install correctly??
Also the original name of the Mailbox folder was "Mailbox Database 0395155002" Do I need to add additional command to create the correct name??
And at what point do I move the old DB files or do a recovery??
