I'm trying to restore an Exchange 2003 server to operation after a RAID drive failure.

I have a full SBS Backup as performed by Small Business Server available to me on tape. The SBS software reported a successful backup.

I did a restore from the backup of the Exchange portion, which shows on the Backup Utility screen as SERVER-NAME\Microsoft Information Store\First Storage Group. Trying to mount this fails. The restore doesn't allow me to choose both a file restoration and the one above at the same time, but also didn't restore all of the log files. Of course, the log files are also backed up from the night before the failure as well.

My Exchange DB is on H:\ drive, while the Exchange program itself is on C:\ drive. I've only restored the H:\ drive, not the C:\ drive, nor the system state, as the server boots and runs fine.

When I do an ESEUTIL /mh h:\exchangedata\priv1.edb I am told that the database had a Dirty Shutdown.

I've tried some of the suggested uses of ESEUTIL /R to try to replay the log files, but am getting a -1022 error.

Can somebody with some experience with this please help me to get this sorted out?

Thanks!
