Corrupted Exchange Database? ARRGH
Posted on 2004-04-08
I have started to work on an Exchange server that has been setup very badly. 2 weeks ago, it crashed and they have been without mail for the same period of time.
After a great deal of hassles and trouble, I have managed to restore the Mail Store and mount it again. However, when I try to Exmerge all the PST files out, it reports every mailbox as a success, but it only exports 48KB, or a fraction of the size of the mailbox(ie, 1.08 megs, 2.12 megs, etc).
I have checked the Mailboxes section under the Mailbox Store in System Manager, and it lists 2 names for almost every user. Under one name is the small mailbox, ie 2,345 KB, 6 items, and under the other name is the real mailbox, 239,930 KB and 2209 items.
I have tried running the Integrity scanner, eseutil-g, but it couldn't find anything.
Can anyone please help out here? How can I restore this Exchange server?
Thank you very much for your help.
