After patching exchange 2000, I am unable to track messages from the tracking center.  The error says:

The tracking database file \server\server.log\2006509.log is corrupted near byte offset 1195562.
"2006510.log "

Facility: Microsoft Exchange Managment
ID no: c1032750
Microsoft Exchange management

What are the proper steps to fix this?

    Can't find much about it. Only thing i've seen so far is to try the following.
    Set the Exchange services to manual, stop all Exchange services (System Attendant will stop them all) and run checkdisk. After startup start the Exchange services again and check to see if it helped..

    Its a tracking file. They don't play any critical part in the operation of Exchange, so I would pull it out - along with all logs dated beforehand. It is a week old.

    *whew*  Can you point me to how I can safely remove the logs?

    The fail safe way would be to change the tracking logs range from the current to say... 5 days. Exchange will delete the file for you overnight. Then check the folder and if the file hasn't gone, delete it manually.
