Exchange transactions logs replayed after server crash
Posted on 2010-11-16
I have a server running Exchange 2003 SP2 that's giving me some trouble. We had an issue back in August with a dirty shutdown that corrupted some data in the information store. I was able to recover everything, verify the database and successfully backup the database and commit the transactions logs. I thought everything was resolved and working fine. Unfortunately, this server crashed last night and this morning we found that it was resending emails from the week of the crash back in August.
I'm assuming that the transaction logs are being replayed, but I can't figure out why it's from the week of the crash. No other emails from the last three months are being sent, just that week. Nothing has been lingering the in queues, so it has to be a log file.
Here's a list of the files that I have in the MDBDATA folder:
there's also the standard E000*.log files from the new incoming emails
Does anyone have a suggestion on how I can get rid of these mysterious emails that won't seem to go away?
