Default Information Store Crashed...

Please Login to Remove!

Greetings all!

Long week.

MY IS store (Exchange 2000 SP3) crashed last week. I created a new IS store so I could get email going while I repair the corrupt IS.

Unfortunately, my blackberries stopped working (were looking for their mailboxes on the corrupt store I assume) and according to support, we had to reactivate all the blackberries. (Pure misery).

Once I have the repaired IS store up and running, is their anything I can do to avoid having to reactivate users again?

Thanks to all. It's been a miserable week!

Without restoring the store from backup, then there won't be much you can do to avoid reactivation of the devices. I would seriously look into a robust Exchange backup solution at this point.
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and is widely regarded as a bad move.

You should be ok if you are able to repair the damaged information store and then export the mailbox content to PST and then do a PST import back to the blank information store you have created.
