    Re: Can i connect my Old Exchange To new domain

    Exchange servers are connected to a domain. You cannot take an Exchange server from one domain and add it to another domain.
    If the other server is working then you will have to extract the mailboxes out using exmerge and then rebuild the server in to the new domain and import the mailboxes.
    If the server is not running correctly then your options are limited. The only tool I know of that can extract the information from the raw files is On Track Power Controls, however it is not cheap.

        You cannot "merge" the databases.
        If the new Exchange server has the same name and Exchange org name then you may be able to get the database to mount so that you can extract the data from it. Then you can import the data in to the live database. If you haven't used the same details then the database will not mount. They are very closely tied to the original domain.
