Offline Recovery of Exchange 5.5
Posted on 2003-02-26
Here goes, had a server h/w failure last week, tried to repair WinNT 4.0 SP6a but it could not find the OS. So I had to rebuild the server (not fun). Had a copy of all the Exchange files that I copied from the exchsrvr directories from both c/d drives. Have restored Exchange to correct SP4 and gave it same name. Replaced the .log/.edb files in the dsdata/mdbdata directories and ran the util eseutil /p d:\exchsrvr\mdbdata\pub.edb /x. I got the following message :
ERROR: unable to read database heasr
ERROR: error -1207 at line 818 of G:\ese97\src\ese\repair.cxx
Operation terminated with error-1206 (JET_errDatabaseCorrupted, non-db file or corrupted db) after 2.353 seconds.
Any ideas how to rebuild the header or any other comments would be appreciated.
