What are you using to restore with?  What application? If NTBackup, have a
look at DNS to be sure that the server is properly registered.

Subject: [exchangelist] Recovery server not recognized

Hi list,


I am attempting to setup an Exchange 2000 recovery server and have run into
a snag. I can browse through the network to find the Exchange recovery
server yet when I choose to restore to it I get a message stating that
either the server is not an Exchange server or the services are not turned
on - neither of which are true. I have followed the directions from the MS
PDF entitled "Mailbox recovery for MS Exchange server" in setting up the new
server. I can even query the ports via telnet successfully. I have not
updated any Exchange service packs but I do have SP4. AD, DNS (actually
DDNS) and such are also running on the recovery machine. 


Thanks for any ideas,
