Emergancy! Cannot mount mailbox store!
Posted on 2004-08-26
Running Exchange 2003 and Windows Server 2003 SBS, with NO backup available.
Due to a power failure our Exchange mailbox store and public folder store cannot be mounted.
We are receiving the error:
"An internal processing error has occurred. Try restarting the Exchange System Manager or the Microsoft Exchange Information Store, or both.
ID no: c1041724
Exchange System Manager"
I have tried using eseutil but no luck.
We have been recommended to backup all the .edb, .pub and .stm files to a different location, UNINSTALL exchange,
then re-install exchange, and copy back the files. Is this going to work? Is this going to kill Active Directory?
It would be a massive problem if something went wrong, unimaginable infact!
Could anyone suggest a list of things I can try instead of this? And if it is the only way of getting Exchange running again, what are the risks? This question is worth way more than 500, if its possible to give more I will.
