I found very interesting situation. I have client that have been running exchange 2003 for four years. They have been doing full backup of mail boxes, public folders and system state every day. If they have to restore emails they had been doing from their backup. They did not got image of their mail server. Yesterday, their mail server broke . Now they have mail data but no image to restore their server. We tried to install Windows 2003 machine with same name but when we tried to install exchange 2003 it throws error. The error stays that exchange server already exist. I think the mail information still exist in AD. I removed exchange server information from DNS but I am not getting how I can remove information about ex server from AD. Since we do not have image to restore. I had to go through whole process like Windows installation, then exchange installation and then restoring mail boxes. Is anyone here faced this situation? any idea how can I install email server with same name as dead server
No announcement yet.
