  I give. I have read every article here I could find and still can't get this done. I have an Exchange 2000 Server that crashed. Dead. I have a straight file copy of the data directory. Not a backup, a copy. I got a new server, loaded WIndows 2000 Server and Exchange Server. Ran all the updates and copied the ,edb files back to the data directory. I have run eseutil and inisteg until I am blue in the face but can not mount wither the mailbos store or the public store.

   When I try to mount the stores I get the error message below:

An internal processing error has occured. Try Restarting the Exchange System Manager or the Microsoft Exchane Information Store service or both.

It could not e as simple as copying the .edb file back to the data directory and checking their integrity. What am I missing and why can't I do this? Thanks!

Try this:
1. Stop the MS Exchange Information Store service.
2. Rename the MDBDATA folder on all drives to MDBDATA.OLD on ALL drives. Create a new MDBDATA folder wherever you renamed one.
3. Copy the PRIV1.EDB and PRIV1.STM files into the proper MDBDATA folder.
4. Clear the events in the Application Log of the Event Viewer. Close the event viewer.
5. Start the Information Store service.
6. Make sure the databases are mounted. If they aren't then try to mount them.
7. If they fail to mount then check the application log in the event viewer and post the errors back here.
