The exchange organization contains a single new Exchange Sever 2003 computer. The Exchange server contains one storage group and one mailbox store.

You create mailboxes on the new mailbox store. At the end of the day, before your first backup job has run, the disk controller fails. You replace the disk controller. You discover that the mailbox store is corrupted. You also discover that the mailbox store is dismounted.

You need to ensure that you can mount the mailbox store with the minimum amount of data loss?

a. Run the exchangedump command.Then run the isinteg-fix command to repair the mailbox store

b. Move the files in the transaction log folder to a safe location. Run the isinteg-fix command to repair the mailbox store

c. Move the files in the transaction log folder to a safe location. Then run the eseutil/p command in the repair mode.

d. Run the eseutil/r command in recovery mode. Then, if necessary, run the eseutil/p command in repair mode.



------ I think it to be a. since the exchange dump already has the data and isinteg is the utility to fix the intrgrity or repair exchange database. ------

2) Hard repair using following command.

Note:- Befor Performing Hard repair make sure you have taken backup of your exchange database(.priv1.edb/stm) and  Disk Space required for offline defragmentation - 110% of the size of exchange database from where you perform Hard recovery.
