I had an exchange server crash, I ran eseutil and was able to get the server back up. I am having an issue with Outlook though, the first problem is when you try to add something in the calendar, a alert comes up stating that the server is not available to perform the function. So i deleted the Outlook profile, and when I try to resolve the username it is giving me an error "The action cannot be completed. The bookmark is not valid." Which is the second problem, not sure what is going on. Any ideas, I'm sure it has something to do with the crash.

Looks like you did not fully recover your Exchange server. You should first look in to the reason why your Exchange server - crashed. Check the event log on the server side containing an error messages. Check if Exchange Informational storage service are running.

The calendar works in OWA, I think it has something to do with either Outlook or the Global Address List.

The Exchange server crashed because RAID controller died and had to be replaced along with 2 Hard drives. I went through the errors this morning and now I am error free. I only have information coming up in Event viewer. No yellow exclaimation points or errors.
