We had a total system failure this past weekend on Exch 2003 box...

We built new box in /DistasterRecover mode... restored from tape...
Everything was working fine... now today all of the sudden certain users are not getting messages.  

We see with advanced logging..
The following call : EcLocallyDeliverMsg to the store failed. Error code : -1605

and

The following call : EcLocallyDeliverMsg to the store failed. Error code : -2147221240

We selected one user.. exported one user (exmerge)... deleted the mailbox... recreated and imported...

Still have the same problem...

Can anyone advise what is going on here... ?

The problem is most likely Database corruption from the restore. I would check it out using some tools

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/924206

that should help you confirm is your database is good.

It is...

Question for you...

two options here..

I am going to bring up a new server and move the mailboxes to this new server.. I can either do this with exmerge or I can use the move mailbox wizard.

I would like to not have to touch the clients so I thought I would bring up a new server named the same thing use the /DisasterRecovery install method... if I do this then the profiles dont have to be touched because the server name will be the same.  If I change the name of the server what will happen to my client profiles if I use the move mailbox wizard?  Will their profile move over automatically or will I have to touch all the clients?

Thanks

Looks like the profile will update itself according to this....
Now the question is since the database is corrputed will a Move Mailbox fix the problem for me or does an exmerge need to be done into the clean db?

Seems like a move into a clean db or an exmerge either would accomplish the same thing...

yes if you just install exchange onto a new server and move the users using the migrate wizard the users will not have to do anything except close and restart outlook.  this is probably your best solution

you should be fine with a clean database on the new server and moving the mailboxes
