please send more info.  It may not be a corrupt database. Try start the services and then post the warning message that appear in the event log on your exchange server.

All service not start ??

If that's the case, obviously is not database corruption.

Normally if there is database corruption, Directory Service, Systems Attendant still can start.

Any password changes for exchange administrator acc ??

1)  Have you done clean installation ??
2)  Did you install with same "organization name" and "site" ??

If yes,
1)  you just need to replace both pub.edb and priv.edb
2)  start 2 services - system attendant and directory service.  Then,
3)  run isinteg -patch.  see this http://www.microsoft.com/Exchange/en/55/help/default.asp?url=/Exchange/en/55/help/documents/server/XMT04034.HTM
4)  Finally start all services.

You probably need to run a repair on the .edb files.  Use ESEUTIL /p /ispriv and then ESEUTIL /p /ispub.  You will need to have free space equal to 110% of the size of the database on the drive or you will have to redirect the temp directory with the /t switch.

try renaming the Edb.chk file in the Exchsrver\Mdbdata folder to edb.bad - then try starting the Information Store service again.

agree with geoffryn, you should run ESEUTIL /p /ispriv and also ESEUTIL /p /ispub.

try to look for biggest hardisk on the exchange server machine.  for example you have 6 G database u would need at leave 6.6 G (110%)  free space.

If the greatest drive is x drive you need to copy eseutil.exe from c:\exchsrvr\bin to x drive or if your c:\ big enough you could go to command prompt c:\exchsrvr\bin and run esetil from here..

Good Luck !!!

I usually see this error on a clustered server. If that is the case the fix every time is to set an environment variable.

ISINTEG needs to have this variable equal to the "Virtual Exchange Name" of your cluster. This is the name users type in when they set up Outlook.

Go to a command prompt and type

SET _CLUSTER_NETWORK_NAME_=MYSERVERNAME

Make the syntax EXACTLY like that above. Note space after the word "set" and NO space after the "="

Microsoft has the wrong syntax in one of the TechNet articles on this.
