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.
Event ID 9175 and 619

Deleting the logs files before restoring did the job.
