Exchange 2007 SLINK:EcUpdate Errors

We are getting occasional errors on one of our Databases.  I see a lot of articles about ISINTEG etc, but this seems to be more related to Exchange 2003 and not Exchange 2007.

Should I worry about these errors.  Is there a method on Exchange 2007 to fix database errors, or possible corruption.

Thx

There isnt much of a difference when such error occurs if its Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2007.

In Exchange 2007 STd you can created 5 Databases and in Ent you can have 50 .... so what is the size of the current affeted DB and is it Ent or Std ?

Exchange 2007 Std, Information Storage size of affected database is 34,528,337kb.

The database is about 32Gb .... i guess you have only 2 Databases.

Why not create a New mailbox Database and move all users over to it and relax and if there is any corruption or anything it will be excluded when you move mailboxes.

Granular recovery for Microsoft Exchange

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

Firstly, do you think these errors are really going to cause us a problem in the short term or can we afford to monitor the system and see if the errors get more frequent?

Secondly, if we did have the confidence to do as you suggest, which sounds nice and easy, could you recommend a good, well explained article (in english) to follow, to help us do this?

Thanks

Isinteg is more of a logical or pointer corruption so not a big deal but better to correct before it becomes and issue :)

Thank you for your help.  One more query.

Can you link us to an Exchange 2007 method on how to run / use the ISINTEG command, including stopping, dismounting mailbox stores.  Greatly appreciated.

You can simply Right click on mailbox Database in EMC and select Dismount .... ISINTEG is the same for all versions however let me see.

Great feedback, and very prompt!  Love the links to sites outside the Microsoft Technet etc.  Visuals are always better and we feel more confident following those.  Microsoft's Technical papers are too technical, not visual, and always leaves one open to making an error!  Thanks again for the great help.
