The consistency check of the snapshot for the Microsoft Exchange transaction log has failed - 0xe000032d

When I run a backup of my Exchange 2007 system I get the following error:

Final error: 0xe000032d - The consistency check of the snapshot for the Microsoft Exchange transaction log has failed.  You should check for possible data corruption in the transaction log that is online.

However it still backs up all of the data it seems. I have tryed the article suggested by Symantec http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/285294.htm but no difference. I have also tryed an "ISINTEG -S DISRUPTIVEMAIL -FIX -TEST ALLTESTS". All the tests were passed and it didn't help the backup job. I have also done all the symantec and windows updates and tried recreating the job with no luck.

Any ideas im really stuck?

Thanks

Hi TriumphLTD,

You can use these utils: isinteg\eseutil

They can check your Exchange database for you. It should solve the issue.

Cheers.

I did already use the ISINTEG command as I put in my post. I ran "ISINTEG -S DISRUPTIVEMAIL -FIX -TEST ALLTESTS" and it didn't work. What other ISINTEG command or ESEUTIL command do you reccomend. I don;t want to run the ESEUTIL -r as thsi could remove corrupt parts of the database.

Thanks

LOL! Sorry, didn't realise I put in the ISINTEG command.

I would first run the eseutil -g to check for integrity.
Then eseutil -p to repair if errors were found.
Then eseutil -d to defrag the database.

I would strongly suggest that you take the database offline, make a copy and run these utilities on the copy that you made. If you are happy, override the original with the copy that you changed with the utility.

Cheers.

Hehe thats OK. I can certainly try this. One point to make though is in the error it says that the consistancy check for the "Transaction Log" failed. Is there a check I can run on the transaction logs becuase as I understand it these are not part of the database. Correct me if im wrong!

Thanks

No, you're right, but do it anyway.

Use:

ESEUTIL /ML xxx (Where xxx is the first 3 characters of the log file's name)

This command will scan all transaction log files and verify that they are all in sequence, that they all match each other, and that none of them are damaged.

Thanks for this information, I have actually found the fix on another post. The problem was casued by Exchange 2007 rollup 4. Uninstalling this fixed the problem.

Thanks for all your help though.
