Exchange server down
Posted on 2009-04-20
Ok I have a real system crash on my hands. Customer said he had a power outage. When the server canme back up the Information store on Exchange 2003 would not start. He has been doing backups using NT backup but only did the Information store not the Exchange directory. All the Exchange services will start but the Database will not mount. I get these errors in the event log:
Information Store (5460) First Storage Group: Database D:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA\priv1.edb requires logfiles 529-529 in order to recover successfully. Recovery could only locate logfiles starting at 535.
Error 0xfffffde1 starting Storage Group /DC=local/DC=RbAKnoxville/CN=Configuration/CN=Services/CN=Microsoft Microsoft Exchange Information Store.
Storage Group - Initialization of Jet failed.
I have tried restoring from NT backup but the event logs keep telling me log files are missing. Is there a procedure for recovering from something like this? how about eseutil?
