Exchange database corrupt

Posted on 2009-02-10

I have a server in which a RAID card failed.  I was able to get the priv1.edb and pub1.edb and associated STM files off the drives.  I restored the backup from the day prior and then copied the edb and stm files to c:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata.  When I try to mount the stores, they error out.  When I try to run eseutil /g it tells me the database is not up to date and it is recommended that I bring the database up to date.  So I run esetuil /r E00 and it gives error -501 Log File is corrupt.  Then I try eseutil /p "c:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb" and it warns the database is not up to date please use recovery option, which I ignore, then says operation terminated with error -4001 jet_errfileIObeyondEOF.  I feel as if I am running around in circles with eseutil.  I know the database and stm are good and have replaced the entire mdbdata folder with the latest version and databases still won't mount!

    jet_errfileIObeyondEOF means the database cannot be repaired.

    Please restore the earlier days backup & the have the available logs files till date ciped to the log file location, if your last log which is e00.log is corrupt then have log files till prior to that in the log file directory & run eseutil /cc after the restore is completed.
