Exchange server hard disk crash priv1.edb 0KB - Exchange recovery process
Posted on 2005-05-04
Hi First post..
We have had a production exchange 2000 server crash this morning (Hard disk failure, RAID 5 config yet it didnt remain redundant. Have now managed to rebuild the logical disk, but there has been file corruption)
The priv1.edb file is 0KB
the priv1.stm is 2.6GB (so looking complete im assuming)
I have 850 .log files, and the e00.chk file
I have a veritas backup of the Information store, but it is listed as corrupt in veritas
I have a veritas backup of all Mailboxes, which looks to be good.
The short question is:
Where to go from here?
I have ran ESDEUTIL in recovery mode, with the following result
E:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\BIN>eseutil /r e00 /l"E:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDAT
A" /s"E:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA" /d"G:\mdbdata"
Microsoft(R) Exchange Server(TM) Database Utilities

Initiating RECOVERY mode...
Logfile base name: e00
Log files: E:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA
System files: E:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA
Database Directory: G:\mdbdata
Performing soft recovery...
Operation terminated with error -4001 (JET_errFileIOBeyondEOF, a read was issued
to a location beyond EOF (writes will expand the file)) after 2.234 seconds.
Is it possible to just create a new information store and dump the backed up mailboxes into it?
Any help would be much appreciated
help asap would be even more appreciated!!
