Is it possible to test run a disaster recovery on Exchange 2000 with
different hardware than the original server?
If not, what is the procedure for recovering an Exchange 2000 server to a
replacement server (with online backup)?
We are trying to restore Exchange 2K onto a different server.
We are following the restore procedure from the MS Exchange website and have
done a basic installation of Windows 2K and have restored the Active
Directory. However have the following problem.
When we attempt to re-install Exchange using the /DisaterRecovery switch the
installation immediately fails with the following error in the Event Viewer:
The description for Event ID (1005) in source (BOExchangeSetup) cannot be
found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or
message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. The following
information is part of the event: The system cannot find the specified.
Facility:Win32 ID no: c0070002 Microsoft Exchange Setup.
We have restored the AD for a second time with the same result.
Is there away around this problem or maybe a better route to restoring
