can't mount mailboxes
Posted on 2006-04-19
I am running Exchange 2003 on a Server 2003 box. The server failed and I had to rebuild the server. The company only did data backups of there server. So I rebuilt the server with the same name. I then installed Exchange using the /disasterrecovery option. Finally, I restoredf the edb and stm file from tape using veritas. THey were running the exchange agent to perform the backup of the exchange database. My problem is that when I go to mount the mailbox store, I receive a message that the store could not be mounted and the error code is:c1041724
Anyway in my event viewer, I am also receiving error messages like this:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: MSExchangeIS
Event Category: General
Event ID: 9518
Time: 6:24:52 PM
Error 0xfffff05f starting Storage Group /DC=com/DC=companyABC/CN=Configuration/CN=Services/CN=Microsoft Exchange/CN=emaildomain/CN=Administrative Groups/CN=First Administrative Group/CN=Servers/CN=SBSSERVER/CN=InformationStore/CN=First Storage Group on the Microsoft Exchange Information Store.
Storage Group - Initialization of Jet failed.
When I ran eseutil it says that the shutdown was a dirty shutdown. I have the transaction logs, but when I attempted to do a recovery using the E00 log, I received a message that it was past the EOF.
So here are my questions...
1. Is there a way to repair the EDB file without the transaction logs. I was told that I should do a /r before I perform a /p
2. How long will a repair take on a 14 GB exchange database?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
