Hard repair recovered database

Posted on 2011-03-13

Running Exchange 2007 SP2 server in CCR. OS is Windows 2008.

I have recovered a database using RSG but need to run a hard repair on it.

Problem is, I don't have much space on the active node to do this.

Is there a way I can hard repair on the passive node itself, which has more space, and then move the file back to the active?

why are you running a hard repair on a restored database?
you can run eseutil on the passive node

You can run eseutil /p on different location.

Hi Endital

I don't think we backed up the logs file properly so we need to run the hard repair as the recovered db won't mount.

Not a big issue, but can we just copy the db to the passive, run eseutil against it, and then copy it back to the active again?

yes, that will work
make sure you run the defrag (eseutil /d) and isinteg against the database after the hard repair
