I'm doing a "roll forward" of an offline backup for Exch 5.5
I am running;
E:\exchsrvr\mdbdata\eseutil /mh "E:\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv.edb" | find /i "consistent"
How long should I expect it to run on a 40 GB database

Just run the following:
E:\exchsrvr\mdbdata\eseutil /mh "E:\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv.edb" | more
You will see the state listed about line 8.

It should only take a few seconds since ESEUTIL /MH just reads the header of the database.

Basically the restored priv.edb is not happy - ran "isinteg -pri -fix -test alltests on it" and it didn't even recognise the priv.edb file!! Attempting another restore now, thanks for the feedback.
