Here are a few docs from Microsoft's web site.  Note that I have not
read over these...

There is also a good whitepaper on MS's site that I cannot find now,
titled something like Exchange backup and recovery, part 1 and part 2.

Subject: [exchangelist] Exchange redundancy and disaster recovery

We recently had an issue where we had to rebuild exchange 5.5 and
mailbox's etc back into it. We suffered considerable downtime which has
now possed the question of disaster recovery.

We have a domain with a pdc and bdc (NT4 server) and have created a bdc
off site which is part of the domain and is synchronising remotely. I
to come up with a good disaster recover for the exchange server.

We are using veritas backup which is backing up private store, public
store and one other folder. Could someone suggest the best way of
this. The exchange server cannot be taken offline. I have looked at
exmerge but am not sure if this would copy permissions etc if the edb's
are in use.

Is there a way of creating a second exchange 5.5 remotely and mirroring
the accounts of the original exchange. (Exact copy - but the backup
exchange server does not function unless the other one goes down.)
