The name of the the database files in this store is invalid

Hey guys, this morning after I rebooted my Exchange 2003 Standard server I'm getting The name of the the database files in this store is invalid after I try to mount the store.
Other Error:
ID No:C1041737

I have 1 store First Administrative Group
I backup the exchange using Symantec Backup Exec 11D, I have a good recent full back as of this morning 4am. I went thru the recovery in BackupExec and it ran successfully but still can't mount the Exchange store. Am I doing something wrong or missing a step.
Can anyone walk me trough how to recover the store and emails?

ok so you have the standard file names.
start the information store service (if this does not start please provide the exact error code).
go to the properties of the mailbox store.  verify that the path, and file names actually match.  if not this would be the first things to fix.  dont forget to check the priv1.edb, and priv1.stm.  both files are critical.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

All the services started with no error ad the patg under mailbox store are pointing to the correct file names and path.

then i am guessing that there is some type of weird corruption.
i would
1.  backup the existing files in case we decide to come back to this.
2.  delete the file and start the store to get mail running again.
3.  attempt to restore the IS from your backup exec.

actually you could run an

eseutil /mh against the files just to see what it tells you.

ok so now we have some idea where we are.

 you need to run
eseutil /p path to the edb file.  this will repair the database.
