Running eseutil.exe /p
Posted on 2006-07-03
I need to run a hard repair on one of our databases that is corrupted. I've read all the ramifications of running a hard repair, luckily we were able to move all the mailboxes to a different store, but I would still like to give this a shot for practice. I've also read a lot of problems people seem to be having of the hard repair not finishing and getting hung.
Anyway, the question I have is what parameters do I need to include with eseutil.exe /p? I have not been able to find much info on this process. We don't have much space at all on Exchange server, so if this process creates a temporary database while repairing the original, I'm going to need to include some switches so that it creates this temp database on a network drive.
I know I need to run an offline defrag and isinteg -fix against the database after the hard repair is completed...
