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.

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.
Like amit said play the eseutil /cc command.

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.
