Cannot Mount Information Store after an NTBACKUP restore Exchange Server 2003
Posted on 2012-04-05
I have just lost one of the disks on a clients server. This meant that i lost the MDBDATA folder. This meant I lost the whole information store.
Luckly the client had done an NT backup of exhange the night before. I have run the restore and recovered the MDBDATA folder.
The problems is that the store will not mount. I get error in the event log as shown below:
Message 1: Event ID: 619
Information Store (3292) First Storage Group: Attempted to attach database 'C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb' but it is a database restored from a backup set on which hard recovery was not started or did not complete successfully.

MDB failed to start.

I really need help here. Can any please suggest a solution. I need to get client back up and running as a matter or urgency.
Thanks in advance
