Exchage 2003 Store won't mount

SBS 2003, (Exchange 2003).  Something unknown happened that locked up the server.  Only option was holding the power button.  Server restarted fine, stores won't mount error is corrupt database.

Here is the current situation:

This happened yesterday morning (Saturday).
-I have a good backup from 8 days ago. Yesterday's backup didn't complete. The NAS that does a nightly image based backup failed, making the 8 day old backup the only one.
-Yesterday I did a complete SBS(ntbackup) backup of the server. Succeed except for the stores which were of course offline.
-I did an eseutil /mh of the current .edb's and both show State: Dirty Shutdown.
-I copied the entire MDBDATA folder to an external drive as a backup of its' corrupted state.
-Then I renamed the MDBDATA folder MDBDATA20100912. In this folder is res1.log, res2.log, priv.stm, priv.edb, pub.stm, pub.edb, 1 E00.log file and a few dozen E000????.log files. priv1.edb is 23+GB, priv1.stm is 6.7GB or so.  -Then I restored the MDBDATA folder from the 8 day old backup into the Exchsrvr folder right there beside the renamed one. Free space on C is now 67GB.

Now I need help.  I have not run any utilities on the newly restored .edb files. Do I replace the log files in the MDBDATA folder (with the week old but probably good .edb's) and run eseutil to put the new log files into the old edb's? Some help with the exact steps is appreciated, and exactly which files to use.

your backup is from 8 days ago, but do you have all of the logs since then
if you do, the best course of action is to restore the database

I just ran eseutil /mh on the priv1.edb file that is 8 days old (in the MDBDATA folder).  It also shows dirty shutdown.

the other option is to run eseutil /p but that should be done as last resort

eseutil /p
eseutil /d

Yes endital1097 I have the backup from 8 days ago, and also the contents of the mdbdata folder since then, which presumably means I have it all.  But the copy from 8 days ago says state is dirty shutdown also. So how do I proceed?

after the restore you should run eseutil /cc

the database will be in a dirty shutdown state until the logs are replayed

btw, the logs will take a long time to replay
just monitor the application log to see them finishing
please post if you see them running

You mention

"after the restore you should run eseutil /cc
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa998097(EXCHG.65).aspx"

1) What exactly is meant by "restore"? If it is running ntbackup to restore the MDBDATA folder, I have done that.  That link shows a restore.env file.  Where is that file? I can't find it.

Tell me what files to put where, and what to type at the command prompt. I tired and don't want to mess it up.

is your backup just a file level backup, not an informaiton store level?

if that is the case, run eseutil /r

With all due respect I have told you exactly what I have.  This still leaves me reading volumes of info on /r, /cc etc.  If there is some detail I have not provided ask and I'll answer.

an eseutil /p should be the last possible solution
therefore you should try the eseutil /r first

if that fails, you should follow the steps previously provided for eseutil /p

OK Thanks endital.  So I think I that narrows it down.  I will run the /r.

I think what I need is the edb files from the mdbdata folder (the older edb files that have been restored from backup) and the log files from the mdbdatafresh20100912 folder.  What about the res1 and res2.log?

Again, the edb files currently in the mdbdata folder have been restored and are a week old or older.  The files in the mdbdatafresh201020100912 folder are newer. Do I delete the old log files from the mdbdata folder? As you see there are 3 log files with the same or newer date than the priv1.edb in mdbdata. Do I need those?

Here are the contents of both folders:

you should use the restored logs and the logs you backed up (renamed directory)
the version you use for the duplicates doesn't matter
you need all of the logs for this

In the past I have succeeded by running a /p and not copying any of the logs back in.
Since you have it all on a external anyway, just run the eseutil /p without any logs copied in the log folder, and it should really mount, provided it has the same original name and all.
What kind of restore did you do on the server?

I got one more burst of energy and googled and read. I ended up using eseutil /ml and /mh to determine which log files were required and were good.  the /mh on the edb showed the name of the last file needed.  But there was no file by that name.  The /ml of the e00 file showed that IT was the last file needed (had the name referenced in the /mh of the edb).  I moved the old log files into a folder and then copied the new log files into the mdbdata folder with the old edb files.  Then did a eseutil /ml to check all the files.  The last one was corrupt.  So I copied the previous (last good) file and renamed it e00.log  Then started the read into the edb. What I did was select the e00.log file and press delete.  This prompted me with "are you sure you want to delete"? I left the prompt.  Started the read into the database and immediately deleted the file by clicking YES on the prompt.  Got lucky. No errors, it worked and mounted.
