In my studying for the Exchange 2000 Admin Exam  I am needing to test recovering from a crashed Exchange Server. My setup: Win2K Adv Server - DC Win2K Adv Server/Ex 2K Std WinXP Pro w/Office 2003 for test client All 3 computers are connected on a non-internet facing private test LAN. I am using the Std version of Ex 2K so I can see what happens with the 16GB limit. Three groups of users have been setup: Execs, Admins and Users. Each has different MB limits in force. Here is what I plan to test: Hitting the 16GB DB limit pulling the plug on my Ex box while sending a 1GB attachment deleting the log files before a b/u is made delete the checkpoint file before a b/u is made recovering a MB from a b/u recovering a msg from a b/u rebuilding the Ex box using a full system b/u and a normal Ex b/u recover using a recovery server receive virus infected e-mail and disinfect the server sending/receiving e-mail that exceed the MB limits in force After I finish testing the Std version I will install the Ent version and mess with, and up, multiple stores and multiple databases. Are there any other scenarios you would recommend for me to play with? Thanks Webster 1. No snide comments about MS certs and/or exams needed. They are required for my employment so I take them.
