Test Database integrity using Isinteg

isinteg -s <servername> -test Alltests

Check database integrity using Eseutil

ESEUTIL /G "C:\Program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb"


Providing you have 110% of the database size free (note it creates a temp db in the working directory!)

ESEUTIL /D "C:\Program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb"

Assuming theres a lot of space on drive f: (NOTE you need to put C:\PROGRA~1\Exchsrvr\bin on the end of the path statement {system variables}) for the following to work. This also assumes you've copied priv1 to the f: drive.

eseutil /d f:\priv1.edb /t f:\temp.edb


 WARNING Copy the priv.edb and priv.stm elsewhere before doing the following

ESEUTIL /P "c:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb"

Repair using ISINTEG (Last Resort)

isinteg -s <servername> -fix -test alltests

well i'm still getting the exact same error.
i ran the eseutil with /p and /i

there is no e00.log file
do i just create a new one?
Pete LongTechnical ConsultantCommented:
Whats listed in

Exchange system manager> admin groups > first admin group > servers > servername > storage group
right click storage group > Properties > general

will give you the path to where the log files should be (and their naming convention)

Whats up with the store will it just not mount or something?
phileocaAuthor Commented:
it's unmounted.  It crashed sometime this morning.  when I try to mount, i get that error message above.
phileocaAuthor Commented:
the antivirus gave quarantined the log file.
i turned off the AV and put the log file back.

now i'm trying to figure out how to sync the datbase with the log file.
Pete LongTechnical ConsultantCommented:
Dont throw things at me but there is plenty of spare room on the volume holding the priv2.edb file isnt there?
and you have been through

and if you ran eseutil with a /p switch you should manually delete the log files anyway :)
phileocaAuthor Commented:
So i don't even need the log files is what you're saying.  

there is plenty of spare room on the volume yes. and the database is far from being full.  I enforoce archiving.

I went through that support page and everything was okay. mounting still failed with the same error msg.
Pete LongTechnical ConsultantCommented:
>>So i don't even need the log files is what you're saying.  

Well Thats what Ive Read online - though Id move the log files elsewhere instead of deleting them then try to remount the store

thanks PETE.. that last comment gave me the FINAL clue.
