How do I setup a recovery server and do the recovery?

How do I setup he recovery server?

I have a spare 2003 server box, do I just put exchange server on to that and 
restore the database file into the mdsdata directory and then run integrity 
tools? Does it have to be the same organization or can it be a stand alone

Are you trying to rebuild a server to get it back online?  Or are you trying 
to restore a database to get some data out of it.  If you are trying to 
restore a database, try restoring to a recovery storage group.  If you are 
just doing test restorations or testing D/R procedures, you do NOT want to 
put the recovery server in the same Active Directory forest.  You need to 
build a new AD forest for the recovery server.  Take a look at the E2K3 D/R 
Operations Guide.

The best Exchange setup in a small hosting setup
I need to set up at small hosting setup where the users can access their email through RPC-HTTPS and webmail. But what do I need? One ISA server? One front-end server? One back-end server? Some clustering or is it overkill? Best Regards Martin - You can do it with as little as a single Exchange server and a firewall. - In a single server environment, FE/BE topology doesn't really buy you much... - Clustering can be an overkill or not, depending on what your goals are. If high-availability is a valued goal, you could look at clustering (and the investments that go with a clustered ...

Page Setup
Hi, I have a problem with Excel XP in that when I preview a page which is in Landscape, it automatically displays as portrait. When I resize it, it goes back to landscape but then back to portarit again ! Any ideas ? Many thanks. Colin. If you change printer drivers, does it happen? If no, then I'd download a newer/fresh printer driver for that troublesome printer. Any chance you have some helpful macro jumping in to fix the page setup for you? If you open the workbook with macros disabled, does it still happen? Colin wrote: > > Hi, > > I have a problem with Excel X...

Exchange SSL Server Certificate
Hey all; We just set up a new ex2k3 server after demoting/removing the old one. Currently we are functional on email but we are having issues with the offline address list and free/busy.

Account setup is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.
I just upgraded to money '05 because my bank no longer allows acess using money '02. I have been getting this message for TWO WEEKS now. I set up three accounts with no problem, then this message over and over every day. I have tried starting a new account and I still get the same message.

[ANN] The Entourage Help Blog: "Updated Exchange setup script supports Entourage 2008"
I've posted version 2.0 of my EntourageExchangeSetup AppleScript on The Entourage Help Page that includes support for Microsoft Entourage 2008's Kerberos feature as well as some minor additions and bug fixes. This AppleScript is intended to be modified by an administrator to assist his Entourage users with the setups of their Exchange server accounts. It has been tested specifically with Entourage 2004 11.2.6, 11.3.3, 11.3.7 and Entourage 12.00, 12.0.1 and 12.1.0 but should work with any version of Entourage 2004 SP2 (11.2.0) and higher.

The DBs are over 16GBs on EX2003 standard on W3K. I am going to do a offline defrag but I think that will just give me enough to open the DB, not much more. Can I create another database on this server and move users to it? If not, any ideas on how I fix this? This is a political issue and they will not do anything about reducing the size of their mailboxes, so that is not an option.

System Cache in W2K8 R2 file server
Hi, I have a file server that is constantly consuming all of the 8GB memory it has, after reading quite a bit about it I understand that it is the System Cache that is eating up all the memory. The server has somewhere between 30MB to 300MB available memory but most often about 100MB. W2K8 (not R2) has the Windows Dynamic Cache Service where I can set a max-size on the System Cache but that service doesn't run on W2K8 R2. Is there a way to limit the size on the System Cache in W2K8 R2? Thank you in advance. Stefan > > > I have a file server that is constan...

Messages queue for one hour after server is rebooted
I recently started a new position here. They seem to keep having problems with their Exchange Servers. They have their exchange server databases on a SAN separate from their exchange servers. They are running an antivirus program on the Exchange servers, but excluding items listed by microsoft from being scanned. Their issue is that they reboot their servers (I don't know why they keep rebooting), but each time they reboot, messages queue for exactly one hour before they queue clears. Any ideas? -- Dberryhill I'd find out why they keep rebooting the servers. On Fri, 12 N...

Profile Setup
When I enter the server name and mailbox name when setting up an Outlook 2003 profile, how does it lookup the name? It seems I can put any name in the server area as long as I have a valid mailbox name. I used a made up server name and it still resolved the mailbox. Thanks, Outlook 2003 uses the Global Catalog servers in an AD environment. (Exchange 200x refers Outlook 2000/2003 to the GCs.) Outside of that, I didn't think what you just did was possible since a new profile (o/s and outlook) shouldn't have a reference to a GC until checking in with Exchange. Guess Outlook ...

I just started at a new company and they have no disk space on the server and no money to by additional storage for some time. I browse the server and removed any files that are not needed.
