Use isinteg first to check the integrity. Use below command
isinteg -s yourservername -fix -test alltests

you need to dismount db. normally that should fix the issue. If still you see issue. Create new DB and move the mailboxes.

Repair, I recommend if db is mountable, else create new db. Creating db and moving db doesn't have any downtime.

Hope this helps.

if log chain is missing. Say out of 100 logs....if anyone is missing in between, you cannot replay further logs and data will be lost.

Say if you have from e01 - e99 and e50 is missing. so after e49 you cannot replay any further logs and data is lost.

Can you expain in more details, what is the issue. So i can help you more

You cannot replay logs after e50 as chain is missing.

Try one thing...Just a idea, copy e49 out of the log folder. Rename it to e50, copy it back to log file folders and replay it by using eseutil /cc command. Check it this works. Try it in a test env first

Above one is my idea only. It is on your risk to decide if you want to do it.
