Running Exchange 2007 and I get the following error in the event log when trying to start the exchange services:
%1 (%2) %3Database %4 requires log files %5-%6 in order to recover all committed data. Recovery could only locate up to log file %7, and could not locate log generation %8. If the log file cannot be found, the database(s) can be recovered manually, but this will result in losing committed data.
Where the % values are actual values from my database. Looking at the following article:
It says "If the missing log files cannot be located, the recovery can be achieved via running Eseutil /R /A at the expense of the data in the missing log files"
Running eseutil /r /a tells me that I am using invalid parameters. Trying to run eseutil /r e00 says that the file is missing, but I can see that it is definitely there. The client, unbeknown to me, had removed their backup media and I have no working backup of their data. Can something be done?
