Exchange won't mount the database

Below is part of the error.

Exchange is unable to mount the database that you specified.  Error code: MapiExceptionCallFailed: Unable to mount database. (hr=0x80004005, ec=-501)

There is a MS KB article on this if it is an exchange server 2007 or 10. Tell you to run setup and repair active directory.

This command is not available in SBS

Where would this be in SBS 2008?

Any direction would help.

SBS 2008 includes Exchange 2007, so what is the KB Article you are referring to and which command isn't available?

The only refrence to this error i could find is this article

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925825

It says to run: Setup /PrepareAD.
This is not an option with SBS.

So I was stuck.

Problem solved with bare metal restore using known good backup
