Restoring the Exchange Server backup should be same Server name as the
old server, as well as HD configuration like C, D, etc. Size--NO matter.
Use with \disasterrecovery to retrieve the server information from the
Active Directory.

Subject: [exchangelist] Restore of Exchange with NT-Backup

Hello all,

I have the following: My exchangeserver crashed. The harddisk with
2003 Enterprise and Exchange 2003 installed broke down. I have a
backupfile of the informationstore created with the Exchangeclient in
NTbackup. Now I have reinstalled my server. It has the same domain, but
different name and a different diskconfiguration. When I try to restore
Exchange it automaticly tries to restore to the old server. But this
not exist anymore and I cannot restore it to the new server. Is there a
way to bypass this? I also thought that when I manage to get the offline
databasefiles I can extract the mailboxes so that I at least have the
mail. But these files are in the BKF file and I cannot restore it to an
alternate location. Does anybody know a tool which I can use to extract
the files? Hope someone can help me.

With kind regards,
