Exchange is currently in recovery mode.

We have a new Exchange 2007 server and I keep getting this msg when I start my Outlook 2003 "Exchange is currently in recovery mode. You can either connect to your Exchange server using the network, work offline, or cancel this logon.

But when i connect, everything seems to be working fine. And it seems I am the only user getting this error message. I check with a few others but no one else seems afflicted.

Did I toggle a maintenance mode in Exchange Server?

Any suggestions welcomed.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Sounds as though you recently did a dial tone recovery of the database, i.e. deleted the old database and created a new fresh database?   If so then you need to;

1. Do as Meganuk3 suggested above, i.e.  in short create a new OST because the signature in the OST is looking for the old database and its no longer around.  The main problem here is that  the encryption data associated with the previous mailbox/database is no longer available.

2. If you want to preserve the data thats within the current OST,  I would recommend that you first open the OST in offline mode so that you can export the data to a PST file since the OST will more then likely contain data that is NOT in the current online database.  

Having this data in a PST readable format will then allow you or the user to view and import any missing data into the users mailbox after creating a new OST which will just be a sync of the data currently on the Exchange server.  For more information you should read KB article: 282496 - Considerations and best practices when resetting an Exchange mailbox database http://support.microsoft.com/kb/282496


OR

3. You can recover the previous database to RSG, swap it out with the current dial tone DB and merge it back into the recovered database.  More on that here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb310773(EXCHG.80).aspx
