Corrupted Databaseisinteg -s Server Name -test -alltests -fix

Hello,

Exchange Database was corrupted...dirty shutdown ...no backup

I've created a dial tone database so users are kind of happy.

I'm in the process of finishing off the eseutil /d "\databasepath" and the next step would be to dismount the dial tone and put it into a RSG.
Then Take the repaired database and put it into the Storage Group and mount it....Then dismount it.and then run the command "isinteg -s Server Name -test -alltests -fix"
I would like to minimize the impact to users. So my question is can I go ahead and run the command  "isinteg -s Server Name -test -alltests -fix" without first mounting it?
Intention is to merge the repaired database with the dial tone database with minimal impact to users.

Hope I make sense,

Tacobell2000





question once I'm done with the defrag what do i need to do?

eseutil /p is for repair
eseutil /d is for defrag
after that run isinteg

"isinteg -s Server Name -test -alltests -fix" without first mounting it?
>> yes you  can

eseutil /p etc will run at the rate of 5-6 gb per hour
you need 150% of EDB free space in the disk.
eseutil creates temp.edbs in the same location as the .EDB file path. You can delete these files when you are done.
insinteg -fix runs much faster. You will have to repeat the isinteg till you get zero errors.
Then mount the database.

I think you got it covered.
here's a guide anyway.

ok...so i have completed the defrag of the exchange server. I have the edb file and i have to run isinteg on it.
How can I do this without disrupting the users....remember I have a dial tone database that is working now...and would like to merge it with the repaired database.

You won't disrupt the users.
You are working ona separate database that is dismounted right now

Run isinteg from there ?
You are running the command from a command prompt against a database (that is a file) , do it does not matter if you have a RSG or not.

You will be running isinteg from the command prompt.

RSG is for mounting the recovered database and doing the merge etc.

ok so the dtabase is:

D:\repaired\priv.edb on the active node of the Exchange 2007 server.

so the command would be this:
isinteg -s ExchangeServer1-test -alltests -fix ?
