eseutil /g saying corrupt but it's not??

Hi all,

Brand spanking new edb and stm files with data freshly exmerged into them and when I run eseutil /g priv1.edb > privedb_PhysicalTest.txt I get the below error message???  Is the location of the files important?  I have copied these files to a separate drive after a "clean shutdown" (yes I did check to make sure the state of each file is "clean shutdown").  We are up and running great so I'm guessing i'm running it incorrectly... anyway... if someone could shed some light on this it would be much appreciated!  Thanks!

You ran this against the databases while they were offline? If so, can I see the command line syntax? Something doesn't look right....were the files in their default location when you checked them?

but I don't see the eseutil.exe or the ese.dll in this folder. If this is where you copied the data to, but didn't bring eseutil or the ese.dll with you, then it's probably trying to read the MOUNTED stores, which is why it failed. Copy those 2 files over to this folder, then run those batch files. Make sure those batch files are running eseutil FROM THIS PATH, not from the exchsrvr\bin directory. the ese.dll should be in the bin directory as well, if not, look in \system32.
