Subject: 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 mailboxes 


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.
