Go with your gut ;)

Having said that, you might possibly be able to build up a new domain,
install E2K3, and restore the database, then manually attaching
mailboxes to users.  Possibly.  I think.  I've never tried it, but it
seems like there should be a way to make that work.  This of course
assumes you have a good backup of Exchange.

Subject: [exchangelist] AD Failure and Exchange 2000

I lost my only DC (bad mistake on my part to only have one) with a
hardware failure.  My backups are bad as well.  My exchange 2000 server
is installed on a seperate machine and is not accessible.  Do I have any
options in moving this server to a new domain? My gut feel is NO. But I
thought that I would ask anyway.  It's a very small system (my home
system) so that would explain why I don't have a recovery paln in place.

Any suggestions?
