Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Hi,
Looking at the corruption of your store, I doubt it would have even Mounted properly and that could be causing all other issues.
Well I would go about thisway...Use ESEUTIL for the Databases (Priv1 & Pub1) first to check DB health, then Repair along with ISINTEG. So steps would be
  • Database health ::: ESEUTIL /MH (verify output and see if recent Backup was available)
  • Repair ::: ESEUTIL /P (if nothing else works and you are ready to compromise few mails here and there)
  • Defrag ::: ESEUTIL /D
  • ISIINTEG
Here are couple of Links to guide you on ESEUTIl and ISINTEG
Hope this helps
Thanks

@ Exchange_Geek:
If "Are you reading what the comment mentions ??? the database files in this store are corrupted ??

Does that ring any bell ??" was to me.
Well it rings but have face a problem  when windows  delete something and its icon or  link  still appears  but when u try to re delete  it is not  accessible, but when u  restart the  pc or the  program or services  related to it it disappears.

that is why i wanna ensure that is not the case, by restarting the server  before we  decided his data  is actually  corrupted or not

Well, my suggestion under such circumstance - get rid of Exchange out of such boxes - get your box fixed ASAP - else you might end up with exchange not responding  one fine day because of windows issues.

Exchange_GeekCommented:
Firstly, can you try to disable all third party applications - antivirus - monitoring tools anything. If possible stop information store service.

Run eseutil /mh on the database to check if the state is clean shutdown state. After you are through with the above steps.

Rename the log file folder and create a new folder - work with starting the information store service with check box on store property - database tab - do no mount store at start up.

Once the service starts - work with mounting stores.

Oh if your database is not in good shape and you need instant help - feel free to ping me at v-9tshah@passport.com (MSN Chat id)

Alrighty thanks for getting back.  I actually fixed it.  I downloaded the exchange analyzer and told it to repair the db.  It did.  Took 2 hrs but it repaired it.  I started everything back up and all was good.  However I do still have that one little mailbox that is showing as corrupt inside my big information store.  But no worries I'm just going to leave it alone.  Not worth the headache of a corrupted db over one little mailbox inside it.
