Isinteg options for a specific database

I need to run the isinteg command against a corrupted database in an attempt to repair it.  I've already ran eseutil /p and eseutil /d.  How can I run isinteg -fix against a particular database (named mailpri.edb, mailpri.stm) that is dismounted without affected the other databases that are currently online?

Thanks.

isinteg -s servername -fix -test alltests... you can only check databases that are offline anyway.

No!
Run:
ISINTEG -S servername -FIX -TEST ALLTESTS
servername= Then name of your Exchange server.

You will then be given a list for which database to run this against.

There are some occasionally. Although it was probably not needed this time.
I was making a point that he should have fully read your answer.
Then I thought that maybe I should just elaborate on your answer.

resourcepc,
when you get readt to award point they should go to microtech for his answer.

Thanks, but just like microtech's and microsoft's answer, they don't explain what the alltests option is....  That's why I was still a little unsure about what to put after > isinteg -s servername -fix -test

Check out this article:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/182081/en-us

In the section for 5.5 it lists the individual tests that can be run. When you say ALLTESTS then everything will be checked. Even though this is for 5.5 it still roughly applies to later versions of Exchange.

As a past MS PSS engineer supporting Exchange I can recal only once or twice maybe that I ran a specific test instead of the ALLTESTS.
