Move Exchange Database

  • From: "Adel Guia Cruz" <aguia@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

This is my scenario:

I have two Exchange 2000 Server Standard Edition Mail1 and Mail2. Same 
organization, administrative group and service pack.

Mail1 is a production server, Mail2 is a test server.

The hard disk where Mail1 database is located fails. I have an online Backup of 
Mail1 Exchange Database.

Mail2 don't have any users mailbox.

Can I restore the Exchange Mail1 database in Mail2 server ?

If the names of Storage Groups and Storage of Mail2 match Mail1 can I do a 
restore ?

Thanks for any help !!
