Exchange - mounting MDBDATA after restore
Posted on 2011-09-11
Recently I used Storage Craft - shadow protect (for win SBS 2k3) to restore an image of windows SBS 2k3 on to a new server. Restore worked fine however when try to mount the exchange data from Exchange systems manager i get the following message:
" An internal processing error has occured. Try restarting ESM or the Exchange information store service or both. Examine the application log for events related to this error. The description fields of these events will contain specific error codes and may contain links to MS KB for troubleshooting"
ID no: c1041724
Exchange Systems Manager:
Now I have tried various troubleshooting method using eseutil.exe /r /p /I etc... but got no luck. So I suspect the problem could be related to the E00.log or Exxxx.log files being corrupted, if i delete these log files from the "live" exchange would it affect the exchange server or staffs emails in any way?
I want to delete these log files and then do a full restore, please let me know if you think this is going to create problems on the current exchange server? also if you know of any other methods that could work to mount the image on the new server
