Use legancyDN for the same. This would change the Orgnisation name and then
u can mount the database.


Altrenative I would prefer to exmerge the data from previous serverf, give
the user PST and let them work on the new server. 



Thanks and Best Regards

Subject: [exchangelist] Database issue

We are running Windows 2000 and Exchange Server 2003 Ent on one single
machine, which is also a DC. Exchange and Emails is working fine but we find
problems when we are reforming our DC services. Somehow some of our Active
Directory services are corrupted and we can not join a new machine to the
domain as additional domain controller. Lot of engineers tried to
troubleshoot it but didn't succeed. So to get rid of this we did one thing.


1.      bought 2 new machines
2.      installed server 2003 on both machines
3.      one is now domain controller with the same old domain name 
4.      second is member server with exchange 2003 ent installed
5.      created approximately all accounts which are around 250 with


Now I need to find out how I can link my old exchange database with this new
machine? What I am planning is to somehow link the old database with the new
machine and shutdown the old one...pls reply if anyone has suggestions...but
m sure with one thing that the old machine can't be troubleshooted and we
already wasted lot of time on the old one.
