Yes, You can re run domainprep and forestprep. I am not sure to what
extent you lost your AD, if you have lost a lot of Exchange related
schema, then adprep and forestprep may not see that you have an existing
Exchange organization, and may create a new Organization. But it is
perfectly safe to run domainprep and forestprep in a "working

Subject: [exchangelist] Exchange permissions in AD

Hi All,

I have had part of AD go corrupt and according to MS, recreated the
controller security by importing a security template. Now that this is
done, my exchange is complaining about permissions for auditing and and
DSAccess etc. I can see some signs on the web that this is caused by the
overwriting of the security by the template and that the  domain prep
changes have been lost.

Is it safe to re-run domain prep on this production exchange server?
