Hi,

we have a problem with an exchange server 2003 sp2 install at a client.

The client had some problems and before calling us he was experimenting himself to get the exchange database online with. He deleted a lott of files in the mdbdata folder. I was able to restore the mailbox store because it was in clean shutdown but I'm unable to restore the public folder store because it is in dirty shutdown.

The problem is that I only have the edb file, no stm or log files. Can anyone help me with a solution for this problem ? The waren't using the public folder so I geuss the best way is to create a new one ?

Regards,

You will need to run ESEUTIL /P on the public folder database, see here for further information: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa996773(EXCHG.65).aspx

Once that's done you will need to run: ISINTEG SERVERNAME -fix -test alltests

Keep running ISINTEG until there are no errors at the end of the output.

Sorry, the steps should be:

1. ESEUTIL /P "full path and name of database"
2. ESEUTIL /D "full path and name of database"
3. ISINTEG SERVERNAME -fix -test alltests

1. Good info from Demazter, however on step one you will need to run the following since you said the STM is missing correct?

ESEUTIL /P /CreateSTM "full path and name of database"

More info here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555146

2. Probably the safest method is to do the repair, defrag, isinteg as Demazter outlined, however, as an alternative if you absolutely were not using the public folders you can delete the Pub.edb (Or just move it to another directory) and then when you attempt to mount it ESM will tell you it cant find the files and will create new ones for you HOWEVER, be absolutely sure you were not using it.

Thanks, I'm shure that they don't use the public folders  so I deleted the pub edb file and after mouting a new one was created and the store mounted.

Thanks !!!
