Replaying Logs to Get Past Dirty Shutdown, Error

Hi
We had a server crash and since have built a new one with Windows Server 2003 and Exchange 2003 (same as before), of course no backup just the files from the old server.
I have got as far as woirking out that my pub and priv databases are in Dirty Shutdown mode and by using my logs i can replay any un-commited trx's and get them into a clean mode from where i can either attach them to the new exchange or export the data to PST's and import into the new exchange from there.

The problem is when i go to run esentutl /r on the E00 with the /L /S /D switches pointing at the data and /i on or any combination i get the folloing error:

Initating RECOVERY Mode...
Log File Base Name : E00 - CHECK
Log Files: E: - CHECK
System Files: E: - CHECK
Database Direcotory: E: - Check

Performing Soft Recovery

"Operation Terminated with error -1 (JET_wrnNyi, Function Not Yet Implemented) asfter xx seconds"

Now i am not an expert especially with DOS scripting but what am i doing wrong?

These aren't the origional location of these files on the first server but i put them here while trying to recover them to make life easier.

Something is happening as it is updateing the EOO.log file but the priv1 and pib1 files are not changing.

This is difficult to me, but it may be eay to you and down to my lack of knowledge :-)

You're trying to run esentutl.  This will not work properly against an exchange database.  Run eseutil from the \bin folder instead, and use eseutil /r e00.
