hey guys, this is my first time installing exchange server and need some tips about how to do this. if i'm supposed to be in another forum, please redirect me...thanks.
i'm actually installing it on a server thats standalone, no network connected to it and veritas backup exec is going to be installed on this also. i need to do a restore of the information store and do not want to overwrite our existing information store. so i was told by veritas tech support that i needed to build another server, completely off the network, have exchange and veritas installed and restore the information store to that server.
now i dont have AD on this server or any protocols installed (NNTP, DNS, DHCP, etc.) can this be done with the basic install of exchange and when i do a custom install, what utilities should be included?
any advice would be helpful...thanks!
forgot to mention, running a windows 2k server with sp4.
