Information Store service terminate unexpectedly

After a recent power outage our Exchange databases came back up as dirty shutdown.  We ran eseutil repair and defragment against the databases removed the log files and the databases are mounting again.  Now we are having intermittent crashes with the information store service.

In the appliciation log we have many warnings stating A folder view which previously experienced consistency issues has been deleted and will be rebuilt the next time it is needed.   Not sure if it is related.

If possible, create new db move the mailboxes to new db and delete the old one.
Eseutil /mh
On your databases and look at the repair count. Did you run eseutil /R or /P?

Any 3rd pary apps on exchange or the server?

Repair count is listed as 2.


I also installed rollup 2 and rebooted still doing the same thing (but maybe a little less than it was at first)
Only 3rd party application on the server is VMware tools as it is a VM.  Not running antivirus on it.

I ran eseutil /p and /d

Every time I tried to run /r it would fail.
hemphillcAuthor Commented:

That is what I was leaning toward the only problem I'm having is the store keeps crashing and then I'm unable to move the mailboxes.
Does it crash very often? Can you not move any mailboxes at all without it crashing?
hemphillcAuthor Commented:
Thanks.  Just took some time getting them all transfered over.  Some of the mailboxes had to have the mailbox repair request run against them again to transfer and one mailbox was beyond repair but contained a small amount of data so I just removed it.
