Exchange database doesnt mount after hard drive failure

Hi,

Long story short, after a hard drive failure it seems we have some currupt logs and database wont mount

After running eseutil /p for several hours, it came back with error
Operation terminated with error -1119 (JET_errReadLostFlushVerifyFailure, The da
tabase page read from disk had a previous write not represented on the page.) af
ter 8175.794 seconds.

I have about 100 mailboxes, is there any way to either queue up mail flow or recreate mailboxes and import data back later, so at least my users can email while I get a restoration?

thanks

Take copy backup of your databsae another drive and mount the blank database start your mailflow.

Repair your old database mount as recovery database then migrate user mails to new database.

You mean to create mailboxes again ?
If so you have to reconfigure outlook for all.

Mount a blank database - Do you mean create a new database?
Will I need to recreate mailboxes?

As for recovery, I am awaiting my backup file and should have it in a day, and will try that
