Create new Exchange Database to replace corrupted EDB on SBS2011 (Exchange 2010)

An SBS2011 server crashed. The EDB will take a long time to repair. I need to get Exchange back online now.

I need help with setting up a new database. I have created a new database but I cannot work out how to "replace" the broken, unmounted one, so that Exchange starts running again and the existing user mailboxes use that new database instead. The idea is to at least get Exchange online now. I can worry about the old data later.

Many thanks.
