    Hi everyone!

    I have an emergency problem. My server just collapsed and it seems that the motherboard is dead. the server warranty just ended a few months ago and we’ve ordered a new server with windows server 2003 and exchange 2003.
    Yes i know BAD LUCK!
    Now i want to know, is it possible to restore the edb and stm files from a backup tape, copy it to the new server with exchange 2003, the n restoring it somehow? if yes how do i do it?

    Thank u all for help, usefull or not.

    Yes, you can do that, but you need to provide more info before I can help you.

    The old stores CAN be mounted with not much difficulties, if they were properly backed-up, on the new server, but there are some issues you need to consider and provide more info on:

    – Is the AD still working?
    – If no, do you plan to reinstall AD?
    – If yes, do you plan to do a setup /disasterrecovery installation?
    – Do you plan to put the same level of SP on the new server?
    – How was the store backed-up?

    Thank you Danielp for your answer.
    I managed to recover my mailboxes on another server with exchange 2003.

    although the mailboxes suffer of minor weird behavior, everything looks O.K now.
    We Worked hard but it payed off.

    Thank You

    Not knowing anything about your domain environment, it is difficult to give any help.

    Also, please, please, please read the forum rules and start a new thread so different answers can be given to different questions!
