how can I reaccess or restore only the central admin BD (MOSS 2007) if the database and the server no longer exists? (Bd on a old server)

All others webapps still work (bd on a new server) but when I try to go to the central admin I receive an error "cannot display this application". On the logs, the CA can't reach the "database name" from SQLSERVER123(old server) ...

Can I run the wizard again to repair this? what will happen to another webapp?


sorry for my poor english :) Julie
