Hi all,

Powerfailure at one of my clients: Since then getting this in Event Viewer:

Error 0x482 starting the Microsoft Exchange Information Store.
Failed to loadlib eseback2.dll for backup/restore.

Cant get EXchange to Start.

Microsoft Small Business Server 2003. SP etc all applied?

Any ideas?

Is Outlook 2003 installed on that server?

Nope.

What  I have established is that the drive i installed the Exchange on has developedbad sectors. So it would appear that all the exchange system files are damaged. How do i now continue. Can I just remove the drive and get put in the SBS disk1 and do a repair installation onto a new drive?

No, I doubt that would work.  You shouldn't have installed Exchange's system files on a separate drive anyhow though.  You may have to do a complete reinstall.

But first, try to just reinstall Exchange to the System drive by following http://support.microsoft.com/kb/320202

No problem!  :-)

FYI... when you mention learning things the hard way... you wanna know the easier way?  (not to be confused with "the easy way" because there really isn't one of those)...  

So, the easier way with SBS?  Follow the instructions.

I'm not trying to be snide with that comment... but SBS is a pre-configured product that works best when it's installed and managed the way it was designed to be used.  It's really a case where RTFM applies.

There's tons of great documentation right within SBS itself.  Just click on the "Information Center" link in the Server Management Console.

Quite right! Its one of those when i started with SBS i never new how to setup the Mailbox store files on a separate harddrive so i used have it install the entire exchange onto the different drive.

But yes, i'm learning the sbs should just be unpacked and not fiddled with!

Thanks once again!

You can certainly install the stores on a separate drive... and SBS gives you that option when you run the initial setup.

I'd suggest that you pick up a couple of good books if you plan on installing more SBS's.
