are the edb and stm files in the same folder??

if not, then you have to point to it when you run the eseutil command.  You can see the
switches by running eseutil /?.  Y
ou should just have to add a /s

e.g.
eseutil /p c:\priv1.edb /sc:\otherfolder\priv1.stm

Both .edb and .stm are in the same folder. It is not related to folder.

do the signatures match when you do a dump of the header fromboth files

"eseutil /mh" from memory

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Eseutil /i - bypass the database and streaming file mismatch error:

The /i option ignores the signature mismatch error in the check phase if
the
database and streaming file do not match each other. The database and
streaming
file will receive new signatures in the repair phase. Without using this
option,
repair will terminate immediately once the database and streaming file
mismatch
error occurs.

From the Command Line Run:

  eseutil /p <database name> /i

NOTE:
======
The "/i" switch is not available in the RTM version of eseutil.exe. The
"/i" switch was first introduced in the SP1 version of eseutil.exe.
 
If using the RTM version of eseutil.exe and an upgrade to SP1 or later is
not possible, follow the steps in the following article to run the eseutil
/p /i command, you will need to use at least the SP1 version of the files
listed in the below article:

Let me know if this worked out for you. It may however best for you to file
a ticket with Microsoft Product Support Service for phone support.

Questions:
1. How did you get in this predicament?
2. Do you have a backup of your Exchange databases? If so are these online backups made with an Exchange agent?

You didn't answer how you got into this issue.

"We have backup, but it is two day old."
Is circular logging disabled?
If the answer is yes and you have all the log files since the last backup, you can restore the backup and the log files will replay into the database bringing it back to the point of failure.

Dear Exchange Admin,

Yes, circular logging disabled and I have all the log files. I copied all the log files to one directory. It is not in default log directory.

Copy the logfiles to the proper directory.
Then restore you last backup.
The log file should play back into the restored database.

I did restore to Recovery Storage Group. Now I have to replay logs.
eseutil /r "Database" will be fine or not?

YOu shouldn't have to do that.
If there is not an EDB.CHK file present then Exchange will step through all the logs.
