you need to run an offline defrag to set the database to consistent before it will mount:  have a look at this article.  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/328804

No, the Exchange Information Store must be shutdown to run an offline defrag

You can leave them running, the only one you need shutdown is the Exchange Information Store service.

Operation terminated with error -1019 (JET_errPageNotInitialized, Blank database

eseutil (3884) Database c:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA\priv1.edb is partially attached. Attachment stage: 4. Error: -1019. 

eseutil (3884) The database page read from the file "c:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA\priv1.edb" at offset 5719990272 (0x0000000154f02000) (database page 1396481 (0x154F01)) for 4096 (0x00001000) bytes failed verification because it contains no page data.  The read operation will fail with error -1019 (0xfffffc05).  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.
