DIR.EDB question DIR.EDB question brad316 (MIS) (OP) 18 Jan 99 15:42 Is it possible to restore one's messages and calendars when you rebuild exchange srvr on a new pc? I have the old NT on a separate HD. Can you import or what? Thanks Brad email@example.com RE: DIR.EDB question Graeme (MIS) 6 Feb 99 14:40 Brad As I understand you want to move your existing Exchange environment onto a bigger and faster server??. If that is the case, do a full back up of the exchange system, which includes dir.edb. Then build your new system as the same name and organization. The old server will have to be removed from the domain as you will be naming your new system as per the old system. (You can't move mail and calendars from an exchange server into a totally different server name) Unless thats possible now?? Once you have rebuilt the exchange environment restore the backed up data and hey presto. Depending on numbers you can ask the users to create pst files which will keep all their mail and stuff local whilst you build the new system, this way you have resilience in case of a failure. Hope that helps, if it was complete mush Red Flag me..!!
