How to import 5.5 store - priv.edb & pub.edb to sbs2003 exchange?!

Post by bmljb » Sat, 19 Feb 2005 03:31:07


Our NT4.5/Exch5.5 server blew all its' drives & the only backups we have are
the two .ebd files that were backed up last night.

Is there ANY way to import these stores into SBS2003 exchange stores?? I do
NOT want to have to build an NT server just to extract a store from .....

I tried using exmerge.exe but it has no facility to build from the priv.edb
& pub.edb files unless there is a running NT4.5Ex5.5 server.

SUMMARY:
Have a brand-new SBS2003 install - want to import the NT4.5/Ex5.5 stores &
convert. Want to avoid setting up an interim NT server!

Any help MUCH appreciated, regards,

Nico,

I can help you with that. The simple answer is that you need to get a copy
of LegacyDN

Administrative Group names in Exchange Server 2003 or in Exchange 2000

You can mount the old databases, but you will possibly need to have a lot
more help if you don't have a clean backup. I generally suggest that people
contact PSS for help if they don't have an ideal condition on this sort of
recovery.
