Eseutil /i is used in soft recovery command.
The /i switch is to ignore othere database on which log files are not required to replayed

For example, Database drive that contains one of a storage groups Information Store fails

 
This causes the storage group and other Exchange Information stores (on other drives) to go offline (Dirty shutdown)

o   In this scenario if you intend on later restoring your missing database your can, still recover (soft recovery) the remaining Information stores with the use of  the /r mode along with the /I (Ignore) switch.

eseutil /i - Ignore errors missing/mismatched database files (Exchange 2003 and above only)

You can also use /i with the defragment switch /D to ignore and not defragment the streaming file on exchange 2000/2003 servers. The streaming file (.STM) no longer exists on Exchange 2007 & 2010

Ok thanks guys but tell me if I understand well, I'm not sure:)))

Let's say I have this scenario:

STRG 1 contain:

- MBdatabase1: dirty shutdown
- MBdatabase2: dirty shurdown

Missing log is : E01.log

If  I type "ESEUTIL /R E01 /i" Exchange will try to remount Database without E01?

MegaNuk3Commented:
No, it will not try and mount without that log file.

Do eseutil /mh on the databases and look at the logrequired field, those are the logs required to make the database mountable.

Are you missing e01.log?

You should never need to use it, so I wouldn't bother worrying about it.

I have only used it once during a defrag in 13 years of working on Exchange...
