Ok. Here's the deal... This SBS server was functioning flawlessly for the past 3 years. Then the Power Supply died. Put in a new power supply, server comes up, everything looks good - WRONG!!!! No email. When you open Outlook, it errors out saying default email folders cannot be found.
A quick look in the Exchange System Admin show that neither the Private, not Public Infromation stores are mounted. Attempting to mount them fails with the following error message -
An internal processing error has occurred. Try restarting the Exchange System Manager or the MS EXCH Information Service, or both. Examine the app log for events related to this error. ID no: c1041724
Ok. I restart the System Manager and the IS Services then try to mount the pri and pub stores again. Same thing.
Looking at the app event log reveals Event ID 516 - Source ESE and the following text...
Information Store (3080) First Storage Group: Database D:\mdbdata\pub1.edb: Page 691 (0x000002b3) failed verification due to a timestamp mismatch. The expected timestamp was 0x7bb079 but the actual timestamp on the page was 0x7bb02e. Recovery/restore will fail with error -566. If this condition persists then please restore the database from a previous backup. This problem is likely due to faulty hardware "losing" one or more flushes on this page sometime in the past. Please contact your hardware vendor for further assistance diagnosing the problem.
I also see event ID 454 - Source ESE with the following text...
Information Store (3080) First Storage Group: Database recovery/restore failed with unexpected error -566.
And .... Event ID 9518 - Source MSExchangeIS with the following text...
Error 0xfffffdca starting Storage Group /DC=local/DC=scms/CN=Configuration/CN=Services/CN=Microsoft Exchange/CN=SCMS/CN=Administrative Groups/CN=first administrative group/CN=Servers/CN=NPSSBS2003/CN=InformationStore/CN=First Storage Group on the Microsoft Exchange Information Store.
Storage Group - Initialization of Jet failed.
I have ran the MS Exchange Trouble Shooter which advise on running ESEUTIL with the /R E00 /I switches. I made a copy of my transaction logs and attempted to run the eseutil as specified and receive
Operation terminated with error -1032 (JET_errFileAccessDenied, Cannot access fi
le, the file is locked or in use) after 11.16 seconds.
Please help! MAXIMUM POINTS AWARDED!!!!!
