The messages I get are:
The information store could not be loaded because the distinguished name (DN) /O=INFOPART AUTOMATISERING B.V./OU=INFOPART/CN=RECIPIENTS/CN= of message database "InfoPart Automatisering B.V.Mailbox Store (EXCH2K-01)" does not match the DN of directory /O=INFOPART AUTOMATISERING BV/OU=INFOPART/CN=RECIPIENTS/CN=.
The database may have been restored to a computer that is in an organization or site different than the original database.
Could you please give me your professional opinion on this issue? Is there a solution, or must we lose the valuable information that was stored inside the information stores?
It sounds like you have tried everything that I would have suggested. Installing a fresh Exchange 5.5 with the same Org, Site and computer name would have been my best suggestion for resolving this, but it sounds like that did not work for you. If the data is needed, you might want to call Microsoft PSS and see if their support engineers have any ideas, undocumented processes or other tricks that might be able to get your database mounted so you can get to the data.
