dirty shutdown and no log file

Hi experts
The Exchange 2000 SP3 server went down this weekend. Tha status shows a "dirty shutdown" asking me for the log file 29988 which would be  e0007524.log.
I look at the directory and the file isnt there, I have the e0007523.log but not the 24
Therefore I cant execute the eseutil /r command. Pls I need help to remount the info store ASAP
Tks

the correct syntax was without the .log    it is eseutil /r e00, the ".log" extension should not be typed.
It took a while, but it finally fixed the shutdown state.
Thank You rakeshmiglani, prompt and precise. Wlell deserved points
