Note Although the downloadable GUIDgen.EXE file is for Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, it does work with Exchange 2000.
The Guidgen.exe utility randomly generates a GUID that is used to rebuild the site folders. Because the folders are re-created, the data contained in the original site folders are lost.
Warning If you use the ADSI Edit snap-in, the LDP utility, or any other LDAP version 3 client, and you incorrectly modify the attributes of Active Directory objects, you can cause serious problems. These problems may require you to reinstall Microsoft Windows 2000 Server, Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server, Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, or both Windows and Exchange. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems that occur if you incorrectly modify Active Directory object attributes can be solved. Modify these attributes at your own risk.
