I've recently inherited an exchange 2003 enterprise server.  There are 4 information stores, 3 of which have non standard names for the .edb and .stm files.  The first information store has the normally named  priv1.edb and priv1.stm files.  The 3 other information stores have the .edb and .stm files named as such.  Mailbox Store 2.edb, Mailbox Store 3.edb, and Mailbox Store 4.edb.  Using the ESEUTIL I was able to easily perform the offline defrag of the priv1 edb and stm files.  However when attempting to perform the offline degrag of the 3 other stores I recieve an error.  

Has anyone come across this naming convention of the stores?
