Hello,
I have Windows SBS 2008 with two partitions:
C: Drive which is raid 1 (mirror)
D: Drive which is Raid 5

Now the thing is I found that one of the HDDs of the D drive (Raid 5) was rebuilding I don't know why. And my Exchange DB is stored in D drive.

I have taken an image from this whole volume and restored it in another HDD (Sata)

when I restarted the server everything was OK except exchange DB is not mounted and when I try to mount I get the following message:


--------------------------------------------------------
Microsoft Exchange Error
--------------------------------------------------------
Failed to mount database 'Mailbox Database'.

Mailbox Database

Error:
Exchange is unable to mount the database that you specified. Specified database: SERVER\First Storage Group\Mailbox Database; Error code: MapiExceptionCallFailed: Unable to mount database. (hr=0x80004005, ec=-546)
.




--------------------------------------------------------
OK
--------------------------------------------------------



Please help and thank you in advance,

Is the drive letter and database path same?
Check the event viewer for errors.

I just checked the dabase folder I only found the following files:

-Mailbox Database.edb
- e00.chk
- folder name(catalogdata-c1c1716a-1609-4e3d-9c00-d15623c33d95-cc64dd2d-2428-4f12-bba2-79d6d34c4d27)
- and so many text files (E000000A0A4, etc)

Is this OK or something wrong
Check if the database is in consistence state.
Run eseutil /mh
If it is consistence then copy  all the logs to different location and mount the database.
