Exchange 2003 database is corrupt. Cannot backup.
Posted on 2009-05-08
My current Exchange 2003 database is corrupt and backup exec and ntbackup will not successfully backup the database. When I went to perform a restore, Backup Exec stated that the backups were corrupt. The last good backup was over a month ago.
Event viewer reports Event ID 478.
The expected checksum was 3201341912 (0x00000000bed099d8) and the actual checksum was 2309737967 (0x0000000089abcdef). The read operation will fail with error -613 (0xfffffd9b). If this condition persists then please restore the database from a previous backup.
I am running Exchange 2003 Standard. Is there another alternative to restoring the month old database and then trying to import in the new data? I have never ran into this issue and would appreciate any assistance.
Can I perhaps run exmerge on the "LIVE" database and somehow import all of the database into a new database and switch it out with the current corrupt database?
