i have trouble with my exchange server 2000. I reinstalled exchange 2000, restarted server, installed sp3, restarted server. I start Exchange information store service and it crashes shortly after. I probably had to dismount the store before reinstalling..........
Anyway, I tried to do recovery /r E00 it finishes in couple seconds but the /mh shows that database is still "Dirty Shutdown". So I ran /p, detele all log files, and later /d. I did that on both priv1 and pub1. /mh shows "Clean Shutdown". But when i try to mount it again it crashes after a few seconds, the state goes back to "Dirty Shutdown".
Basically, I follow this ms article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313184
What could I try more? I have the copy of mdbdata folder after exchange was reinstalled. I cannot run backup because there is no backup :(
