    Accepted Solution

    1. Do all the exchange services running fine?
    2. Go to exchange system manager - drill down to mailbox stores - check the status (Mounted or Dismounted)
    3. Mounted stores - Fine , If in case showing red mark (Dismounted) try mounting it and check whats happening in case of any error message please mention.
    4. Also does your server shut down due to power failure??
    5. Check the status of the databases running eseutil /mh command.

    Hi Kunal, Thank for your quick response.
    Answers to your Qs.
    1.- yes,
    2.- The mailbox store keeps dismmounting itself automatically after i have remounted.
    3.- When mounting the mailbox i do not get any error messages. Other then mailbox was mounted successfully.
    4.- my server does not shut down due to power failure, i do however restart from time to time.
    5.- please provide me with more infomration about how to do this .

    :( Eschange System Manager Monitoring status, shows that default Microsoft exchange services critital state is stoped. but when i go to detail it shows all the services are runing.

    Please let know me i can do to solve this problem.
    Many Thanks

    Are you running E2K3 SP1 and is your database size around 16 GB??? If so, go ahead and apply SP2 which will increase the size limit to 75GB.
