Using Exmerge to recreate priv1.edb in Exchange 2000
Posted on 2010-08-26
I have a corrupted priv1.edb file that eseutil/p is having problems repairing, and unfortunately no viable backup to restore from.
I'm wondering if, absent a way to sucessfully repair it, I can use exmerge to dump the mailbox data to pst files and then read them back inito a fresh .edb file associated with the same storage group. I am running Windows 2000 SBS and Exchange 2000.
I think I understand how to dump the data to .pst files, but I don't know how to read the data back into a fresh .edb file (and how to associate that with the existing storage group) while keeping my transaction logs intact.
Is there a way to do this experts?
