Run EMS when Exchange server is offline
Posted on 2016-08-18
I have an Exchange 2013 server that is disconnected from the network, and I cannot reconnect it because of the problems it will cause our users (we've migrated to Office 365). But I need to pull a mailbox out of the old database on it, so I need to find a way to get Exchange Management Shell to work without being able to contact a domain controller.
Has anyone ever found a way to make this work? I've found ways to get around the certificate check and the CN check, and the Kerberos authentication, but it consistently crashes trying to contact a domain controller.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
