Recovery of priv1.edb & pub1.edb

Hi

I am running Exchange 2000 on a Win 2K Server and I have had issued with mounting the data stores.

I have gone through the eseutil /mh  and /p and /d processes and I just keep getting Jet error codes of various numbers.  The last one when I run eseutil /p on priv1 is error 1206.

I have a backup which is one week old, so I could restore this backup.  

Is there anything else I can do to save the existing databases before resorting to this measure?

Thanks

If eseutil /p is failing with a -1206 (Jet_errDatabaseCorrupted), and you are at the latest service pack, then this DB is most likely unrecoverable.  Unless you use a 3rd party tool like ontrack to get the data out, your best bet is to restore from your previous backup.

Seems like a stupid question but how do I find our which service pack I am currently using for exchange 2000.

I have downloaded SP3 but it doesn't respond.

Thanks

To determine which service pack installed on Microsoft Exchange Server, check the properties of the server.

click to select the server in the left-hand pane of the Admin program. Then right click Properties. You will see the version, build number, and any service packs that are installed.

When I go into Admin it says - Verion 6.0 Build 4417.6

This tells me that I am running Exchange 2000 but which service pack is it?
