Non-expert Exchange admin with huge problem ...

The database "First Storage Group\Mailbox Store (server)" has reached the maximum allowed size. Attempting to unmount the database.

Now, background ... this is SBS 2003 box with SP2. I can't tell, do not how, if Exchange has SP2 (which is my first question). Now, I attempted to do a granular restore of 3 e-mails folders from a backup tape using Veritas for Widows Server 10.0. The restore failed because with an Access Denied error and I later realized that the backup job was not able to access the information store using the System Logon Account, even thought the data is on tape.

Right after the restore aborted, the store was dismounted and fron that moment on I am getting th error above. I run the eseutil and now have a couple of files that I do not what to do with them.

I will really appreciate if someone can help me. I have 20 users down.

Size of priv1.edb is 7,825,608 KB, priv1.stm is 8,951,816 HK. Files created by eseutil are
tempdfg.edb 7,745,544 and tist stm 77,981,064. eseutil did not report any problems. The command ran was: C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin>eseutil /d /p "D:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\mdbdata\p
riv1.edb" /t "d:\tempdfg.edb".

I also try adding some registry keys, Database Size Limit in GB and Database Size Buffer in Percentage under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIS\<Servername>\Private-GUID and
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIS\<Servername>\Public-GUID, but did not change the situation.

Thanks in advanced.
