Need to mount Exchange Information Store for restore
Posted on 2008-10-09
I need to mount an Exchange Information Store (I only have the priv1.edb-file) for restore of one user's mailbox. I have set up a virtual SBS2003 with Exchange SP2 for this job. I have used the same names (I think), and have now copied the priv1.edb file to this server, and renamed the original priv1.edb and priv1.stm, meaning I now have no priv1.stm.
When trying to mount it, it fails with Event ID 619: Information Store (456) First Storage Group: Attempted to attach database 'C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb' but it is a database restored from a backup set on which hard recovery was not started or did not complete successfully.
How can I fix this? I've tried running various options with eseutil, but they all fail saying it cannot find priv1.stm...
