Hi Experts,
My client runs Exchange 2003 SP2, on a MS 2003 Server SP1. We backup using Ntbackup.
The backup of Exchange has been failing with the following errors (a restart of the server didnt help, its been running OK for several years until recently):

Backup of "SERVER01\Microsoft Information Store\First Storage Group"
Backup set #3 on media #1
Backup description: "Set created 1/07/2008 at 2:48 PM"
Media name: "SERVER01-c-sysstate-Exch-Tue-Thu-Sat.bkf created 27/06/2009 at 9:01 PM"
Backup Type: Normal
Backup started on 27/06/2009 at 9:40 PM.
The 'Microsoft Information Store' returned 'Error returned from an ESE function call (d).' from a call to 'HrESEBackupRead()' additional data '-'The 'Microsoft Information Store' returned 'Error returned from an ESE function call (d).' from a call to 'HrESEBackupRead()' additional data '-'
The operation was ended.


In addtion, I can see the following that might help from the event log.

Description:
Information Store (660) First Storage Group: The database page read from the file "D:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb" at offset 9588981760 (0x000000023b8c4000) (database page 2341059 (0x23B8C3)) for 4096 (0x00001000) bytes failed verification due to a page checksum mismatch.  The expected checksum was 4861139407088000568 (0x43763c890b221e38) and the actual checksum was 8044009879196949827 (0x6fa2105dbb445d43).  The read operation will fail with error -1018 (0xfffffc06).  If this condition persists then please restore the database from a previous backup.  This problem is likely due to faulty hardware. Please contact your hardware vendor for further assistance diagnosing the problem.


Any help much appreciated.
Best wishes,
Wilson
