The Microsoft Exchange Information Store service terminated with service-specific error 4294966278
Posted on 2004-10-11
Server unexpectedly died last friday after I went home (no one thought it was important enough to let me know this). So its now monday morning and I am presented with an error on our exchange 5.5 box.
"The Microsoft Exchange Information Store service terminated with service-specific error 4294966278"
From what I could tell it looks like the information store is corrupt. After reading some MS articles I ran a Chkdsk.exe /f d: and then rebooted. Chkdsk did its thing and I logged into the NT machine and found the error in the event viewer
"The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable. Please run the chkdsk utility on the device \Device\Harddisk0\Partition3 with label "". "
Gotta love Mondays! Anyone have any good ideas on what to do next?
