We had a powerfailure which caused a dirty shutdown on my IS. After trying to mount it or perform soft recoveries with no luck, I started doing the hard recovery (eseutil /p).
Our Store is 52GB and takes forever to do a hard recovery, so to get everyone up and running I moved the store and let exchange create a clean store so that people may start receiving mail again while I'm doing the hard recovey.
My question is this: Once I get my store back to a clean state, may I simply stop the IS service and swap the new empty DB with the recovered DB? Also delete the E00.chk file so that it can create a new one for the repaired store?
Will the store mount in it's old First Storage Group place?
Thanks in advance....
