Dear Ruba, 

 

        I already installed Exchange 2000 , active Directory & Outlook
2003  on one machine.

Then I created 3 users with 3 different profiles, started send E-mails
as normal way.

 I took online backup for Microsoft Exchange information store ,  System
state for my active directory . 

 

After that , I reformat my PC , and install windows 2000 advanced
server, Active Directory, then run the Backup to run the system state to
return back to every thing and run exchange in disaster recovery mode
and I found that its working and I can see all of my e-mails again , on
one machine . 

 

========================================================================

The Main question which I am going to ask you is , in Production
environment, if I have one server for Exchange & one server for Active
directory, and 50 users, and they are working since 6 months. 

 

Imagine if I had this situation , my exchange server goes offline and I
had to rebuild the server again and run the same steps, what will happen
to my users when the exchange 2000 get back online again , is there any
duplicated E-mails ?

 

Is it clear  what I mean ? if they already have E-mails on there PC's
and they have PST, when the exchange back online , is there any
duplicated E-mails ? " it will appear again in front of them ? 

 

With my best wishes,
