Raj,
    Would that work moving from Exchange 2000 to Exchange 2003?

        It changes the following attributes of the affected users,
         
        HomeMTA
        HomeMDB
        MsExchHomeServername
         
        The GUI script is dynamic. It queries the AD and lists all
available Exchange servers in your Organization. And It looks for all
available Information stores in the failed server, and allows you to
select any surviving Exchange server as a recovery server. You must
create an additional Information Store in the recovery server with the
same name as the Information store being moved from the failed server.
This is required to restore the databases from failed server to the
recovery server, and the GUI will warn you if there are name mismatches
in the information store names. I will send you the GUI separately, try
it out and let me know your inputs.
         
        Thanks.
         
        Raj

        That sounds great, Raj.  I would hugely appreciate the GUI app
you've provided, as well as any information you can provide on what it
does in the background!   
         
        Thanks!   That is great help!.

                Hi C,
                This is a very typical DCP/DRP scenario you are
referring to. We have come up with a similar situation, and a
contingency plan to use our UK site as contingency site for our US
operations in such an event. I had worked and developed a VB based GUI
to automatically identify all users in the failed Exchange server, and
move them over to a temporary recovery server by modifying the related
AD attributes. The GUI works excellent. I had tested the GUI in lab
environment with great success. If you are interested let me know, I can
send you the GUI, please try it out in a lab environment, and please do
not distribute the GUI as it contains my firms logo. 
                 
                Once you move the users over to the new server using the
GUI, you still need to to be able resolve the old server name in the
DNS, but pointing to the IP of a DC or a living Exchange server. That
way Outlook will automatically reconfigure itself to point to the new
server. 
                 
                 
                 

                Regards, 

                Raj

                http://www.MSExchange.org/ 
                 
                I'm working through some DR scenarios in a lab.  
                 
                Here is what I'd like to know how to do:  
                 
                Assume serverA blows up.  The server is unavailble.  
                I'd like to restore an Exchange database from serverA to
ServerB.  
                ServerB is an existing Exchange Server with existing
clients, so I can't rename the server.  I must use the name serverB.  
                 
                I know there are some related attributes on
mailbox-enabled users.  MSExchHomeServerName
                HomeMDB.  Do I just need to edit those things? 
                 
                And then part 2 of the transition, how does Outlook get
update or does it need to be done manually?  
                 
                Thanks, 
                C
