  • exchange 2003 rebuild

    hi, I am having to rebuild my exchange 2003 server running on my esx server, due to a problem with a BSOD

    I would rebuild the Server to same patch level and put it on the network with the same name as the current server, I would then attach the vmdk file that has exchange etc on it, just a new vmdk file for the Windows Server OS

    Would this work, or would I need to do reinstall or disasterrecovery of exchange server

    thank you

    Im presuming the virtual machine blue screened correct? If so "why" would you want to reattach the .vmdk under the assumption that its corrupt? Do you have a backup of the virtual machine that is ok?
