I have Exchange Standard 2003 with service pack 2 running on Windows Server 2003 standard edition, fully updated. I use Symantec Backup Exec 12 for backup and restore. I run a nightly backup of the Exchange stores, mail and public. These are full backups. I want to run an offline defrag of my mail store to reclaim 11 gigs worth of space. I am want to do a practice run to see how long it would take and what the results would be.
I do a VSS restore of my nightly backup to a temporary directory on my exchange server. I try to run the ESEUTIL /R command but I get an error saying the DB is in a dirty shutdown state. So I try to run the ESEUTIL /r E00 /D "path to my DB" and get the error:
Operation terminated with error -1022 (JET_errDiskIO, Disk IO error) after 1.0 seconds.
The restored DB is on a local SCSI drive on the exchange server. When I run the restore I have BackUP exec commit the transaction logs to the DB but not mount it.
I have also tried this with anti-virus off.
