I may be missing something here.  You have two separate forests that you
want to use?  That's could be more complicated.  Have you had a chance to
read the disaster recovery whitepapers yet?  If not, now would be a good
time to have a peek.  There is a lot of good information about the
architecture and approaches that are recommended.
Drop me a note off-line if I can be of any help.

I am using Win2k backup and I believe you are correct...that it is not
registering its services in DNS. I set up as the internal
domain for the recovery server. It has AD and DNS on it as I had mentioned
earlier. Since AD is linked to DNS can I delete the domain in DNS and then
add it back? I know you can with non-AD domains. DNS does show the MX record
for the recovery domain and when queried it answers properly, but I know
that is different than registering its services in DDNS. I setup the primary
DNS server is our valid FQDN domain to act as a secondary for the recovery

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.

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,
