Please advise the entire step how I can brink up new server with same name and how can I move all mail boxes and all other public folders without any difficulty. Really appreciate you response
You can not have 2 exchange servers with the same name in your exchange organization. However, you can actually setup a new box and move all your mailboxes, public folders, address lists and everything to it and then decommission the older one. But, if you want to setup a new box just for the reason that the backup software isnt backing up anything and the server has lots of errors in the event log then setting up a new server isnt a good idea i guess. Paste your errors in here may someone would definitely help you with your problem.

<p>Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 released on September 28, 2003. One of the new features in Exchange Server 2003 is enhanced disaster recovery which allows administrators to bring the server online more quickly. This is done by allowing the server to send and receive mail while the message stores are being recovered from backup. Now newly released version of Exchange server is Exchange 2010 after 2007 version. Exchange server 2010 officially released on 9th November 2009. But here I will discuss about Microsoft Exchange server 2003. In a workstation most of users are use Microsoft Exchange server as mail server.<br />

<p> <br />
<p><span><span><b><span> </span><span> </span></b></span></span>1> asp.net<br />
<p><span> </span><span> </span>2> SMTP<br />

<p>To install Exchange Server you have to install the required protocol first. I have install the windows component such as IIS, ASP.NET, NNTP, W.W.W. from control panel with OS CD. Then I insert the Exchange Server Disk in CD rom drive and start the preparation of forest. I open the disk and run the forest prep from Exchange 2003 deployment tools. It will take several times to complete. After completing the forest prep I have run the Domain prep with the same procedure. The Domain prep will take also lots of time to complete. Then I have installed the exchange server by creating a new exchange organization. The total process also possible to complete from Run with command. The total job takes a huge time almost one hour or more. After installing Exchange Server I have configured it as per direction of the company. I have add users, groups, I create new administrative group. Following this process there I have done the whole job successfully. <br>
Open up the Server Management Console, then expand the Exchange Server Settings (usually named "Your Organisation - Exchange"). Then browse to the Servers and then "Your Server", then to the First Storage Group, and then right click -> properties on the Mail Box Store. This then brings up the properties for the Mailbox Store. Click on the "Limits" Tab. You will notice that you have the limits now displayed in KB - change the limits to your desired size, and click OK.
How to change Individual Mailbox sizes in Exchange 2003:
Go into Active Directory Users and Computers Right click on the User account you want to change their mailbox limit for Then go to the Exchange General Tab, and click on Store Limits button Unckeck the Use Exchange store defaults box, and set desired amounts
There are many reasons for the abrupt shutdown of Exchange Server like hardware problem, virus infection, database file header corruption etc. Whatever the cause, there is no doubt that dirty shutdown is a pathetic situations for Exchange server administrators. To handle such critical situation easily, here is great solution: How to Solve Exchange Dirty Shutdown
First things First!
1) you always going to have problems with exchange servers, or migrations. ** systems are not perfects**
2) You can migrate the emails to the new server, but, if only are in the correct version of Exchange 2003.
3) if backup is damage or fail, you lost everything.
4) try to reinstall the Server, and all utilites, is better, I know takes more time, but is better because you created yourself.
I suggest you to install from scratch!
