Log files required for DB mount

Hi

I have a recovered database that won't mount. If I run ESEUtil/ mh against the DB, I notice this:

Log Required: xxx301 - xxx305
Log commited: 0 - xxx305

Now, in the restored log location, there is only a log named E03.log

But, what does the above mean? In one line, it's saying that it needs xxx301 - xxx305, the next line says that the 0 - xxx305 logs have already been commited?

So does it need the logs or doesn't it?

Running Exchange 2007 SP2.

How did you recovery the Database?
Did you recover it from a Backup by perfroming a restore.
If so there should be a restore.env file created which needs to be played into the Database to bring it to Clean Shut Down.

Else you would need to repair the Database by using eseutil /p command.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

The database was recovered by using an RSG with backup software.

Yes, there is a restore.env file, do you know how I can play this into the Database? What does the restore.env file do in this respect and how does playing it into the database fix my problem?

And do I actually need those log files, because it's saying that it needs xxx301 - xxx305, the next line says that the 0 - xxx305 logs have already been commited? That's another part I'm confused on.

You need to run this command

eseutil /cc Path of the storage where restore.env store
eseutil /cc c:\Storage Group

If this doesn't works out. Repair the DB. with /p.

You would need to play the restore file.

If I run ESEUtil /p do I need to run /d and then isinteg -fix as well?

Yes once you run the eseutil /p check and see if the Database is in Clean Shut Down.
Then run the eseutil /d.

Once that is done mount the Database and Dismount it.
Finally run the Isinteg.
