Exchange 2007 not mounting corrupt log file
Posted on 2011-09-13
I had a server shut down unexpectedly. The database won't mount. I finally ran eseutil /r and it said that it had repaired the database.
When I try to mount it now, I get the error about a log file in the even logs. I tried moving all the logs out of the folder and then just the one log file mentioned in the error log but that did not work

If this condition persists then please restore the logfile from a previous backup.
