Exchange 2003 edb faliure disaster recovery procedure

The mailserver has blown up, you get the server back online but the mailsotre won’t boot.  First of all you try all of the Microsoft eseutil fixes but, still no joy. None of the mailstores will come back online. The disater recovery procedure highlighted in this blog gives a step-by-step guide to restoreing your mailstores, for each user, from the users local cached exchange store.

1. Local the user in Active Directory and delete their current mailbox (You’ve lost the mail store anyway.)

2. Create a new mailbox for the same user account. Create this on DUBBUR-MB01  – KPS Default Store (KPS Specific)

-Same process as above, but choose create mailbox

3. Go to the users machine and open outlook with their old profile. Archive this profile to a local PST. Take a opy of this PST to an external HDD for safe storage.

4. Create a new profile called Dubai Hosted and set this as default.

5. Open outlook with this new profile and mount the PST file.

    There are many inbuilt applications available on Exchange sever for recovery of corrupted mail box but this process is bit difficult for a lay man as it requires technical expert. Because all the process depends on command lines. To overcome such issue many companies developed a software for repairing, recovering and conversion of your exchange server database. One such utility is here with user friendly interface thus you can operate it easily without any technical support.
    Free Version also available
