Urgent help on restoring exchange server

Recommended Posts


Some urgent help please.


I had to restore EVERYTHING from backup because I lost 2 drives in a RAID 5 on my client's server.


Server is running Windows 2000 Server, Exchange 2000, DHCP, DNS, and its a Domain Controller.


I was able to restore boot drive, restore the contents of Data portion (where Exchange Data resides), restarted the server


I was trying to restore the Exchange Database when I got this error:


"Sorry, restore preparation failed, error -1 (unknown)"


Trying to get properties of retrospect agent got this error:


"Can't track volumes, error -3404 (Exchange is not running on this system)"


Am I missing some step here? Help please !
