Exchange 2007 Log replay problems
Posted on 2009-04-23
We are having an issue while trying to replay log files into a restored database file. I have restored a database and associated log files from backup (using ARCserve r12 exchange agent) into a recovery storage group. I run an eseutil /mh on the database file and it shows as dirty shutdown and required log file of 0x685a-0x686c. These log files are present in a separate folder called _restoredLogs. I run the following command from the _restoredLogs directory eseutil /r E00 /i /d "d:\...\mailbox database.edb". This command completes successfully however when I query the database file again with an eseutil /mh it is still showing as dirty shutdown. I have managed to get another copy of the database running by using the /p option however have lost some data (as was expected). Does anyone know of a way to get the /r option to replay the logs properly?
