Hi all,

I've lost the machine (SBS2003) that was the host for my Exchange Server 2003 organization. After that, all I have are the public and private edb and stm files in a Clean Shutdown state.

On a new server running Windows SBS 2003 with a fresh installation of Exchange Server 2003 for the same Organization name I get the following errors after tryed to mount the databases, both priv1 and pub1.edb
Message:

An internal processing error has occurred. Try restarting the Exchange System Manager or Microsoft Information Store service, or both.

did you try and create a store, let it run for a few minutes, and only then dismount and replace the files? also, you'll need to playback the STM to get up to date

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I think it is a problem with the version of store.exe. Can we verify if the service pack for Exchange 2003 on both the machines(The one which crashed and the newly installed) are same?

Exch SP2 was installed on the original SBS box and SP2 is installed on the new one as well.

- I want to know if users are running with "Cached mode" in outlook.In case if they are, then we need to export the data to a PST file.

- Then you may try to run the Repair and defrag on the database. But make sure you make a copy of the DB files before running a repair.

I had a very similar problem; see http://forums.msexchange.org/m_1800506457/mpage_1/key_/tm.htm#1800506457.  Make sure you've backed up the whole c:\program files\exhcsrvr\mdbdata directory somewhere.

Was your earlier Exchange with the DST hotfix on it, as it also increases the Store.exe version?
Did you also check the box "This Database can be overwritten by a restore" and then try to mount?
Do we also have the server object with full control over the Exchange server in ESM?

Saurabh,

I think your previous post was right about store.exe
I did a bit of playing around and thought only after the eseutil /p was SP2 installed. So i took the backup of the mdbdata folder, used these files, now that SP2 was installed, ran my eseutil /mh to find the database in a dirty state, ran the eseutil /p then isinteg and thankfully it mounted along with the public folder store.
