Still having trouble.
I gave up on trying to use the old server. I am now working with a new
machine. Exchange installs fine and works well before I start importing the
old dir.edb, pub.edb, priv.edb, and log files. After I move all these over
the Exchange Directory Service will not start at all. I am running the
optimizer could this be causing the problem?
After moving the files on to the new server I am unable to start Exchange
Directory Services. I am sure that I moved them to the correct directory. Is
this failing because of the SAM. I am moving these files to a new machine so
I am not sure if that is the problem.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
