Public Folder Stores #2

I had deleted a server from my Exchange organization and mistakenly lost some 
public folder data that was not replicated.  Luckily I still had the EDB and 
STM files.  So I copied them to another server and mounted them as an 
additional public folder store and hierarchy.  The problem is that now I want 
to copy the folder data that I lost from one Store/Hierarchy to another.  The 
only way that I can find to access the new store is through OWA which won't 
let me copy the data to the main Public Folder store.  I am stuck.  Anyone 
got any ideas on how to copy the data back into the main public folder store?

Thanks.

Load up another server (off the network, please) named identically to
the on that held the PF store and make it a DC in a forest with the
same name as the one you have in production. Install a domain in the
forest with the same name as the one you're using now. Run the
exchange setup program with /forestprep and then /domainprep.

Then, before you do ANYthing else, read this KB article:

How to use Legacydn.exe to correct Exchange organization names or
Administrative Group names in Exchange Server 2003 or in Exchange 2000
Server [324606]

Get the program, get the orgname and admin group name right and then
continue. When Exchange is installed, restore the pf store you want to
get stuff from. Connect an Outlook client to the machine and move the
PF contents to a PST.

Actually found an easier way to do this.  Expose the M: drive which contains 
both public folder stores using info from here:  
http://www.petri.co.il/restore_the_m_drive_mapping_in_exchange_2003.htm. This 
is only necessary in Exchange 2003 because in 2000 it is already exposed.

Then you can simply copy between public folder store folders on the same 
server.  Only thing that gets a bit dicey is security but I was able to get 
around issues there.

Thanks once again to Daniel Petri.

backup same set of servers from 2 DPM 2007 servers
I am changing the DPM server 2007. However, I would like to take this opportunity to revise all protection groups so that I can restore bare-metal any server from a single lTO-4 tape if possible. During this "transitional period," I would like to leave the existing backup settings on the older DPM server to continue to run while adding jobs to the new DPM server. Looks like to me that I have to re-install the agent on all servers so that they can be recognized by the new DPM server. IS there a better way to do this if my plan is possible at all?

Printing on 2 sides of a page?
How can I print a 2 page spreadsheet on the front and back of the same sheet of paper? Using Excel 2008. Thanks! It depends on whether your printer supports duplex printing. Check your printer's features to find out. If it does, the setting will be available in the Print dialog. You can also do a "manual duplex" job by printing page 1 (or 'Odd pages'), flipping the paper yourself, then print page 2 (or 'Even pages')... If it's only 2 pages that might be the simplest approach. -- HTH |:>) Bob Jones [MVP] Office:Mac "Rick"...
