Exchange 2003 database corrupt - log files

Hi,

We have a client that has a SBS 2003 server that ran out of disk space last night and something went wrong with the transaction logs when writing, as far as i can see in the EV,

Please see below for the error:

 EV ID 515

There is no backup available so we are stuck with what we have. Circular loggin is enabled as well.
I tried ESEUTIL /p but that doesnt seem to resolve the issue as its a transaction log file error it seems. Can someone make some suggestions on what could be done to restore the databases even if it means some loss fo data.

Thanks

Hi Coast-IT - i will consider doing that if all else fails - i have made a copy of the E00 files and then deleted them - i now managed to the get the public folder store open but the private is saying the datbase files are inconsistent - i am hoping that now i use eseutil /p to fix the issue even if it means some loss of data - does this make sense?

@AMAuthor,
Yes, You are right but I would Suggest you please take a .Pub.edb and .stm files.
After That you Can Ran the Eseutil/P.
After Completed the Eseutil /p than Ran /D or Isinteg.
When All Activity will be Done Than you Can try to Monut the Database.

If You face any issue please let me Know.

Hi - My aplogies for not getting back sooner -

I managed to resolve the issue by doing the following:

1) Delete the ex00 log files (which were corrupt)
2) Run Eseutil /p to repair database
3) Delete queue folder in VS1 folder
4)Run a chkdsk to restore queue folder access

That seemed to have got me back up and running
