Microsoft Exchange Server is down :( --- This is a sbs 2003 all in one box
(The bad news... I am fairly new to managing exchange server...)
All exchange services running, but no pc's connecting to email server...
Event 9175 has been happening all day. I am in the process of moving this client from one physical location to another, so I havent been paying much attention to email until about an hour ago. (been to busy moving)... I noticed noone could connect to email although they were on network. so I open ESM and look at Information store. The mailbox store has a red arrow. I tried to mount the store and now get all kinds of event messages, now wondering If that was a good idea...
event 9175 -- "The MAPI call 'OpenMsgStore' failed with the following error:
The Microsoft Exchange Server computer is not available. Either there are network problems or the Microsoft Exchange Server computer is down for maintenance."
event 452 -- "Information Store (6304) First Storage Group: Database C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\mdbdata\pub1.edb requires logfiles 26233-26234 in order to recover successfully. Recovery could only locate logfiles starting at 26234
event 465 -- "Information Store (6304) First Storage Group: Corruption was detected during soft recovery in logfile C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\mdbdata\E00.log.

If this condition persists then please restore the logfile from a previous backup."
ievent 454 --information Store (6304) First Storage Group: Database recovery/restore failed with unexpected error -543.
This was supposed to be a simple move, no stress, everything going well and then BAM lol, now I have no idea what to do next, any help GREATLY appreciated !! Do I run eseutil, and if so how exactly do I do that?
I have restarted all exchange services, and rebooted server twice. All the event messages came up as I tried to remount store. Since then, for the past half hour, all I see is event 9175...
