    Server crashed....

    I've created a New server with the same name
    can I shutdown exchange and simply copy the Database files ?

  2. Is the domain name also the same?

    If so, you can, but first you'll need to check the "database can be
    overwritten by a restore" tickbox in Exchange System Manager for both the
    Mailbox Store and the Public Folder stores. Then you shut 'em down, move
    the old databases (STM _and_ EDB) over the top and restart the stores.

    You'll also need to reassociate the mailboxes to the users, though the
    Mailbox Cleanup Wizard should do that for you.
