Glen,
 
You cannot just copy those files over to a new Exchange 5.5 or Exchange
2000 server, you will need to follow certain steps, and its not the
simplest thing in the world to do, I would recommend you look at the
Microsoft Knowledgebase and search for "Disaster Recovery" for Exchange
5.5
 
Recover the files to a 5.5 server and then you can upgrade to 2000 when
ready.

I've got a situation where that I've inherited whereby the OS and
application (Exch.5.5) was completely LOST due to disk failures, BUT the
database files (.edb .dat, etc) are intact in the "MDBDATA" and
"DSADATA" and "MTADATA" folders.. I believe these files represent the
MAILBOX STORE that existed...
 
How can I recover these files INTO a NEW Exchange Server setup. I prefer
to have them in Exchange 2000... Is there an "import" feature??? Do I
have to establish them back into Exch. 5.5 THEN migrate to Exch. 2000..
 
Any help is greatly appreciated..

Mark, 
 
 
When I right click over a user and select Exchange tasks the Wizard
appears. When I choose next, I see delete mailbox and install instant
messaging. I am guessing that this move mailbox feature is part of the
administrative tools on the Exchange 2000 server disk. What do you
think?
 
Thanks
 
Bill

Bill,
 
What exactly do you mean by "was created in my offline address book"?
 
So when you right click over the account in Active Directory Users and
Computers, and then select Exchange Tasks, what do you see?

Good afternoon,
 
    I am presently using a Exchange 2000 box running Window 2K SP3.
While creating a new mailbox, I discovered the mailbox was created in my
Offline Address Book instead of my Priv edb. When I attempted to move
the mailbox out of one location to the other, I learned that the move
option in the Exchange Wizard was not present? Can anyone tell me how to
install the move mailbox feature on my Exchange box?
 
r/Bill
