Article goes over the parameters and steps to either restore dbs from
tape to this new server or copy the flat db files to new server. If you
completely lost your AD, you need to get your AD rebuilt from scratch
again. Then, install Exchange, service packs, restore your Exchange DB,
once mounted, you have orphaned mailboxes which you can than re-attach
to new accounts.

Hi Billy,


As your new Exchange Server is now up


Now create storage groups and mailbox store with the same name as they
were in your crashed server.


After created the mailbox store mount it with blank database, so that
new .EDB and .STM files will be created.


Now dismount the mailbox store and remove the newly created .EDB and
.STM file from database location and now put your backup .EDB and .STM
file here. But make sure that file name should be same. 


Now you can mount your mailbox store with your old database.


Let me know for failure and success :-)

I just received a server that I am trying to recover. The serve
crashed and we lost active directory completely. I now have installed
the OS
and Exchange 2003 from scratch and created the same domain and computer
that it had. The only backups I have are the databases. EDB and STM with
files. Can some one give me step-by-step instructions on getting them
on the new machine and getting the IS to mount?
