Hi there,
I relocated my office this week and after restarting the 2011SBS server exchange wouldn't start. After checking several things I found out that the edb database was corrupt. i managed to repair the database (eseuteil /p) but exchange still refuses to mount the database. As I had also an offline OST file is exported this to an pst file, so I have a backup of my mail. I tried to build a new mail database but this refuses to mount too (same error).

The error I got is:

Active Manager failed to mount database Public Folder Database 1189321365 on server SBSSERVER.internetional.local. Error: An Active Manager operation failed with a transient error. Please retry the operation. Error: Database action failed with transient error. Error: A transient error occurred during a database operation. Error: MapiExceptionNetworkError: Unable to mount database. (hr=0x80040115, ec=-2147221227)

I have looked up dozens of these errors, but I haven't found a solution yet.

Everything you described regarding your attempted fixes is in relation to the mailbox database. But the error clearly states that it is having issues with the public folder database. Those are two different databases. Try running a repair on the public folder database and then see if it mounts,

Sorry yes,
I also get these errors:

And this one I just found:
Faulting application name: store.exe, version: 14.2.247.3, time stamp: 0x4eb442ee
Faulting module name: ESE.dll, version: 14.2.247.1, time stamp: 0x4ea339d0
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x00000000000f77b0
Faulting process id: 0x13fc
Faulting application start time: 0x01cdfae3885a1dd9
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\bin\store.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\bin\ESE.dll
Report Id: c84a007d-66d6-11e2-a747-000c297095e0

The last can be because I tried to upgrade to SP2 which faulted after a while.

Few things :)

- Is all Exchange Services started ? "Test-ServiceHealth"
- Did you try to run "Setup.com /PrepareAD"

- Rancy

At the moment I try to reinstall SP2 so to be sure that it is installed correctly. As soon as it is finished I will try both options.

Did you check the databases for a clean shutdown after you ran eseutil /p
And the status/delete log files as per the below ?

OK,

Installation of SP2 and rollup 5v2 went fine after I disabled all exchange services. But both databases still don't mount.

- Is all Exchange Services started ? "Test-ServiceHealth"
No, the Mailbox Server role gives a "False"

- Did you try to run "Setup.com /PrepareAD"
I just did it (again) and I get no error, just copying setup files and then a prompt again.

The log files are also corrupt.

Thanks,

Roger

Am waiting on Rancy ?

Not sure where he wants to go next with this

Hold off on my suggestions re the database
If you cannot mount fresh stores It suggests the problem is with the actual exchange installation ?

(Take it you re-enabled all the exchange services and checked they were all started?)

Can you check to see if the databases are in a "clean shutdown" state by running the ESEUTIL /MH command in the path of the databases? If they are clean, then move all log files out of their current location (copy them somewhere safe ) and try mounting the database then.

Nope, problem still stays the same. I see the information store srting and crashing all the time. I think the problem is the store.exe error.

I would reinstall just the SP and ensure all is working fine if not take a backup of the Exchange DB and plug out the server from domain ..... Format reinstall OS with all updates Join with same name after reset of Computer object in AD and then do a Recoverserver switch

Yes,
Reinstalling the SP didn't solve anything. I am going to completely reinstall the system.

Yep,
After a complete reinstall of the server, everything works again and the server is much faster also. I think there was something wrong with the complete installation. Maybe i cought a cold when moving the server ;-).

Thanks everyone for helping.
