Why do you need Active directory for the restore?

Heck, just install NT and Exchange 5.5, restore the Public Store, export all the
public folders to PST (Exmerge) and move 'em over...

Subject: Restore Help Needed!


Wow did I mess up...

I cut all of our users over to a new Exchange 2000 server from 5.5 last week.
That went fine. I followed all the instructions for shutting down the 5.5 server
once and for all and did so today. I should have tested a bit more - once I
deleted the 5.5 server from the organization I realized that only some of the
5.5 public folders had replicated. Problem #1  is I need to get some of that
Public Folder data back. I welcome your suggestions on how to do so.

Here is the plan I am working on (and problem #2) - build a 2000 server off the
network,  as its own domain (to keep computer name, domain name the same, etc
for the restore), install Exchange 5.5 SP4, and then restore the 5.5 files from
tape to this server - does this make sense to all of you? Or do you have a
better idea?

Problem #2 is I can't get active directory to install as it is not connected to
the internet and reports a DNS error trying to resolve the FQDN. I have
installed DNS and made this server the SOA and NS and a host record, as well as
the default gateway and primary DNS server. Any ideas on how to get this
working? Am I just missing an SOA record that has only single period in it or
something like that? Thanks for your help - I really want to be home for
Christmas ;-)
