Restoring DB to second server when db came from first but first server is down RRS feed

  • Question

  • We had two Exchange Server 2013 Enterprise servers in our organization.

    Both servers were on the same CU with that exact same updates.

    Server A crashed and won't be recovered.

    We need to mount DB's from server A to server B.

    In ECP on B it shows the list of DBs and mailboxes that were on A, but of course they cannot be accessed.

    We have the DB's from A and they show a clean shutdown state.

    How do we restore a DB to a different Exchange server when the ECP on that server can't contact server A (because it keeps trying)??

    This is obviously critical so any help would be appreciated.

  • Thanks for responding.

    We tried that, but it didn't work.  We wound up calling MS Support.

    They had to troubleshoot it a little bit themselves but we're up now. Thank you.
