Run - ISINTEG fix -test alltests - then select the mailbox store which you need to run the test. also the mailbox store must be in dismounted state to run the test.

SImple commanf for isinteg

Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
From D:\program files\exchsrvr\bin direcory in a DOS Prompt type the following:
isinteg -s servername -fix -test alltests
(change servername for your exchange server's name)
That command should work and then prompt you to choose a mailstore to check.
The mailstore has to be offline before you can run isinteg.

People,

i have typed all the above and nothing works, however, the command alltests is not in the available commands in help of isinteg.

there is however, a command allfoldertests, which i have used and it seems to be working.

I cant believe, no one is aware of this and why "alltests" is not avialabe perhaps its been replaced with allfoldertest?

Thanks

Here is a screenshot of my server Server 2003 Exchange 2003 SP2 which works happily with those commands.  If your server does not like these commands, then there is an issue / configuration problem stopping them running.

well its now running, i had take public folders offline as well..

Things are really wierd, they work one minute and the next they dont..

last question, if all test are successfull is it still worth while doing a -fix command?

i ask this because my backup has been failing due to this error-

It sounds like you need to run eseutil /r to recover the database first.

how does this command exactly works eseutil /r

my info store mounts successfully, so why do i need to run the above command?

cheers

Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
The command is:
eseutil /r e00 /l "location of log files"
type eseutil /r for more info in DOS prompt.

Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
You need to run the command because the database is in a Dirty Shutdown state - Replaying the log files will bring it to a clean shutdown state.
Run eseutil /mh "path to exchange database" to check.

UncleMarvCommented:
If nothing is happening... are you running the command line from the correct path? If you don't add the Exchange folder to be a parth of your path, you will need to make sure you are in the C:\program files\exchsrvr\bin\ folder. The screen shot from alanhardisty  shows it.
The other consideration is after reading all of the documentation, are you sure that you took the information store offline?

Hey Dude, Sorry for not responding, I was not getting the notifications from EE. Somehow some additional characters added to my post that's why the link was not working... Check this, you can keep it for future reference.
