Exchange 2003 store cannot be mounted.

We are in some 90% done to migrate all our users to Exchange 2010.  We still have one Exchange 2003 server on the network.  Last night, it has problem which the store cannot be mount and at the end, we had to follow kb830408 to reset the exchange log sequence to mount the store again.  

I just want to check if someone had experienced this kind of thing before, is there a way to avoid?  When this happened lastnight, all Exchange Services were up - include the IS service, server diskspace was good.  It was just the store could not be mounted.  

Thanks.

Reseting the log sequence is the only option. We used to do it every 2 weeks for my previous client. Manual monitoring is another way. If you have so many logs generated, please make it a process to reset log file sequence every 2 weeks or 4 weekss.

while mounting the database, what is the error message appearing up?

You are not able to mount only one Database in exchange server 2003?

Is that database, recovered from backup? while mounting, can you check the event log and inform the event message.

Performing a manual monitor or using any monitoring software will inform you, when the log generation number reaches the configured limit value.

Considering that you are migrating to 2010, from 2003. u don't need to worry about on how to avoid it in futuerl;

however, check the timings of the mailbox migrations, mailbox migration location free space, and backups runing at the time to narrow the issues.

cheers

Like s00007359 said, you've migrated to Exchange 2010, so dont worry about the log sequence. It's as simple as that.
