I am trying to restore database to Exchange server to recover some very old mail from single user.

I made a clone of the Exchange server who also is domain server
The Exchange server is Domain controller.
There was another domain controller for the same domain on the network, but I have removed it from the domain on the cloned domain controller.
The cloned server is isolated from the network so it cannot se the other domain server.
I can start the cloned Exchange server with no problem.

After I restore old backup from NTBACKUP - all data is read back but the backup ends with Fail!.
When I try to start the Exchange server I get errors.

1. Make a copy of the database and logs before running any commands against them.
2. Make sure the Storage Group name and miailbox stores are exactly the same
3. Run an ESEUTIL /mh against the store to see if there are no logs missing. They may have not rolled forward.
4. Worst case scenario to have databases with a consistent shutdown is to patch them. However first try to do the recovery effort to roll the logs forward.
best of luck.

Deleting the logs files before restoring did the job.
