MS Exchange 2003 Database

I have a MS Exchange 2003 sever running on Windows server 2003 OS. The exchange database is in a dirty shutdown state and I would like to resolve this issue.

Any help/guide lines in getting the database in a clean state again?

You will have to perform a hard repair on the database by using the following command:

ESEUTIL /P "databasename.edb"

always make a backup before doing this.

You will then need to run the following:

ISINTEG -fix -test alltests

Thank you for responding. Is there a kb document that I can follow because I have not done this procedure before?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Thanks you again! I am going through the articles that you sent me now. Do I have to dismount the mailboxes before I start the ESEUTIL process?

Glen KnightCommented:
Yes.  Otherwise it will fail

I notice the article said "Use Eseutil /P when you cannot restore a database from backup" I do have a current backup up of the mail boxes I just need the database to be in a clean shutdown state again.

Does this mean the same thing?

So you have a backuo before the database went in to dirty shutdown?

I am not sure exact when the database went into the dirty state but I have a full current backup of the information store.

I will! What swich do you recomend me using with the ISINTEG untility. I read some thread where they say the "-fix" will damage exchange. Is this correct?
