I am not trying to discourage you, but you have a lot of work ahead of you

First: remember that the dead server is your first DC, and first exchange,
which means you have to first bring it back online as a DC using the
authoritative restore. So you will have the new hardware, and will load the
OS, and name it the same as the dead one, and then restore the system state.
When you get to this point, come back to the forum, and we'll take it from

That's not easy but you will be able to get it done.

Best of luck

Hello to all,
  Guys I have following senerio and can any one have come accros such
situation and have recovery?  If so please can you out line me the method.
  At one site someone had installed first 2000 server with AD, DNS, IIS,
and Exchange 2000.  Later on I have evaluated and added Veritas Backup
with Exchange agent so they can backup every night.  Then recently (lucky)
I did suggested to add a 2nd DC to replicate there AD and I joint the AD
and replicated.  Now there first server which was running exchange and GC
is dead and my question and undrestanding is that if I installed new with
same name as dead server that will replicate my AD. Then I can run
exchange setup /disasterrevocery and then restore Storage Group, and
hopefully, this will bring back there server to original state.  Is my
understanding is correct????
  Or is there any otherway to make this work?????
  Any help will be well taken.
