Hi, I've been having problems restoring a Server we use in a branch office which happens to be a DC and Exchange 2003 Server.

Basically I'm restoring from tape, all seems to be going OK, however when I'm restoring the Information Store even though I check the box to say it's the last set, it won't run the ESEUTIL bit correctly.

Basically I'm getting the error -  Operation terminated with error -939523581 (The time stamp in the next log does not match what was expected.

I've searched High and low but can't seem to find any reference to what might be causing the problem, can anyone help ?

you get this error when running eseutil with which switch?
also do you have any restore.env file present there?

Hi, thanks for the reply, I'm following the instructions on the MS site. I've tried it by ticking the box in NTBackup when carrying out the restore and also tried it manually with the /cc switch. I have the restore.env file and a log file, the problem seems to be with the timestamp in the logs ?

What do you think ?

run eseutil /cm on the restore.env file and then check the log mentioned in it. then check whether the logs that are in the mdbdata folder are in sequence or not

Don't worry, I've sorted it. I deleted the logs in the end as it's a small installation (30 users) so not a lot of mail traffic. Now up and running and mail appears to be there up til the date of the backup. Not very impressed with the problems I had in restoring, especially as I would have thought what I was trying to do was about as basic as these situations get, everything was coming off tape !

Cheers
