Exchange 2003 Error: MSExchangeIS and Event ID 1229 (background index create)

I am getting the following error in the Event Logs of my Exchange Server 2003 with SP2.  I have searched and cannot really find much about it from many sites.  Any ideas?  It pops up several times a day, and belive its only been going on the last month.

It might happened because of online maintenance is not running as per the scheduled time. It happens if you we are running some other task like online backup at the same time. You can try rescheduling the online maintenance at some different time and check whether we are still getting these errors or not!
Try running isinteg -fix -tests alltests on your database of the mailbox store mentioned above.

The error-2147221233 means MAPI_E_NOT_FOUND. There are couple of KBs for similar problem in Exchange 2000.
and MS had a fix for that. You might like to call MS and check if they have a fix for Exchange 2003 SP2 also.

Can this be run during work hours or does it bring the database offline?  If it can be run, will it put a strain on the database, causing performance issues to users?  Also, will this change anything in that I need to run a full backup before running in case something goes wrong?
You need a downtime to run Isinteg -fix -tests alltests command.. This command is run to fix the logical corruption in the database and will take about 1 hour for 4-6 Gigs depending on the hardware you have.
