Exchange 2000 Stores mount okay but are corrupt using eseutil /mh
Posted on 2009-05-09
I noticed that the offsite backups for my Exchange SBE 2000 were not completing. I manually ran a backup using the offsite backup solution and received error CExBackup::backupService:HrESEBackupSetup: Error Number 0xc7ff1004. I did some research and found that I likely had an information store issue. I then ran eseutil /mh Database_File_Name and received error error 1206 jet_errdatabasecorrupted, which indicates a corrupt database on the information store.
The good news is that the store mounts and users do not have any problems. The bad news is that I cannot get a clean backup on the exchange stores, either using offsite solution of NT Backup solution. Both end in error reporting data problems with the database.
I cannot move the mailboxes from the store to a new store becuase Exchange 2000 SBE will only allow the 2 stores I already have. I cannot seem to get a clean backup to them restore into a clean store. I am NOT an experienced Exchange Admin.
What are my options?
