Help...Cannot run eseutil on Exch 2003 database

Posted on 2006-05-06
Last Modified: 2008-01-09
Our server is at SP2 level and is functioning fine.  I was just testing a script to perform the defrag so I could schedule it in the middle of the night and I discovered it will not run.  I cannot dump the header to determine if it was dismounted properly.  The versions of my eseutil.exe is 6.5.7638.1 and ese.dll is 6.5.7638.2
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Here is a screen shot of the message.

C:\PROGRA~1\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA>C:\Progra~1\Exchsrvr\bin\eseutil /ml pub1.edb

    You have used eseutil /ml pub1.edb .and pub1.edb is not a log file that is why you are getting this error .Log file will be e000.log.

    From your error:
    Log file: pub1.edb
