Server reboots during Exchange DB recovery
Posted on 2009-05-17
I am using a Compaq ML 350 G5 with 4 GB RAM, (2) 72 GB Drives RAID 1+0, (4) 320 GB drives RAID 5 using the onboard e200i controller. All drivers are updated to current levels (as of 4/2009). The OS is Windows Server 2008 running Exchange Server 2007. The MDB is approx. 52 GB in size and is contained on the RAID 5 partition. There is approximately 780 GB of free space on this drive.
We had a power outage yesterday which caused the Mailbox DB to become corrupt. After trying other options, I ran Eseutil (/p) to recover the DB. Here is the problem: the server would succesfully run the first two stages of recovery, but during the final cleanup stage, the server unexpectedly reboots.
I am in the process of restoring the DB from backups, but am concerned that the reboots are signs of other underlying issues.
Any guidance/assitance would be VERY much appreciated. I have been battling with this server.
