Hi,

Please run Eseutil /mh "database file" to check the health of the database file, see if the status is “Dirty Shutdown”. If yes, please restore the good database from backup files

If you don’t have the backup, please run Eseutil /p against the database (KB 259851). After complete the repair, please run the Eseutil /mh again and check the status

Hii as said above first check / mh and if any log files are missing, just try /r I.e recovery..
If that fails then run /p..
But after repair u should defrag the database and then u must do isinteg ie intigrity check

The time for this depends on the database size.
Don't forget to take a copy of database files before starting anything which was mentioned above..

To run the database utils, make sure the drive holding the database has at least 2 times the space of the database. If not, you have to path the eseutil to another drive with that much space.

PS: The error reminds me of a move that is incomplete; i.e. the originating server is offline; can't contact the original active directory etc.
Could you tell us any info regarding things that happened before this fail?
