Unable to mount exchange 2000 database


Unable to mount the exchange database...All the exchange services are running fine..Tried restarting them several times...We were running out of space on C: drive...Some how manage to free up 1.7 GB..Is that enough for exchange to work?

When I searched for ID no: C1041724 for details about the error code got a Microsoft article explaining that the above error occurs when there isn't enough space on hard drive.

Any tips on how to free up space on C: drive will be appreciated.

Thanking in anticipation,
Error code: ID no: C1041724

when you run eseutil /mh, take a complete screen shot and paste it hear.

i need to check whether it is i dirty shutdown state or clean shutdown state.

accordingly we will decied what to do.

On this vintage that should be enough space, but when the server went over it may have caused further damage to the database.

You need to find out what is using the space. If it is transaction logs then those can be compressed. Do NOT compress the entire directory, and do not compress the latest logs files. DO NOT delete the logs.

Use something like Treesize to see where the space has gone.

Change the filename to .exe
Then,run it on server.
Also,are u sure it is a diskspace issue.How much free space u have.
I see ur following http://support.microsoft.com/kb/294318

first of all error :c1041724 does not indicate the free spcae issue. the more information you will get from application log .

first of all check the health of the database i.e. .edb and .stm file by running this command from command prompt: In CMD go to Bin directory. type  "eseutil /mh <path of the .edb>" and similarly .stm.

if the database is in clean shut down than, go to location where we have the log files, and move all the log file out of that location.

now mount the stores, it will mount.

it would nice if you share some back ground information what happened exactly , and do you have good abck up available ?

I'm having trouble running the eseutil /mh command can you please explain in detail how to run that command and also how to find the path of the .edb.

(My name is jawad as well)

Open CMD and go to BIN directory in the CMD. i.e. c:\ program files \exchsrvr \bin.
 type c:\program files\exchsrvr\bin>eseutil /mh "c:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb".
 this will give the state of the database.

I have performed eseutil /mh and was completed successfully. Did exchange offline defrag..Moved the transaction logs and database to different drive thinking that the insufficient space is causing the problem. Managed to free 4GB of space on C: drive. Restarted the server and all the exchange services. But still cannot mount the mailbox..Same error "internal processing error has occured..Try restarting the exchange system manager or information store ID no: C1041724

Please reply..
