Exchange Server Crashed!!
Not sure if you will remember me - I'm the guy that has inherited a dodgy Windows Network. On an earlier post, I mentioned that I have 5 domain controllers one of which was an Exchange Server. Well guess what? Today the server suffered a hard drive failure and, depsite RAID5 being installed on the server, we have lost everything! I spent hours trying to resurrect but have had it! What makes it worse, is that I found out today our backups aren't working! The last completed backup was about 2 weeks ago!
I am concerned that some advice on this forum suggested demoting a Domain Controller running Exchange server to a standard member server would be a problematic exercise. Can anyone expand on this for me?
Should I rebuild an Exchange box as member server now, or do I have to rebuild it as a domain controller? Was looking forward to a good weekend but I think I know where I'm gonna be!!!
