One of our clients called us in for some support. they needed our expertise to 
restore an exchange database. The one difficult thing is that their backup has 
failed for some time and that they only have a ghost image of the old 
environment. We managed to extract the MDBdata folder from that error and tried 
to restore this to a testmachine to save the emails.
Although I performed the action before, about 6 months ago, it just wont work 
I already checked the microsoft knowledge base and the MCSE 2003 Microsoft 
Eschange study guide, but I cannot get it restored.
I keep getting the error that the IS cannot be mounted. At this moment I cannot 
tell any errors exactly, but I will send it later. Maybe some of you guys now 
some things or scenarios that I can follow. Or maybe some tips..
