After a reboot the Transport Server service will not start.  I used ESEUTIL to check the integrity, recover and to repair the pasettings.edb with no success.  All the Events and ESEUTIL results are listed.

eseutil /g
Integrity check successful.

eseutil /r /a trn
Operation terminated with error -1216 (JET_errAttachedDatabaseMismatch, An outstanding database attachment has been detected at the start or end of recovery, but database is missing or does not match attachment info) after 0.203 seconds.

eseutil /p
Integrity check successful.


Source:       ESE
Event ID:      494
Description:
edgetransport (12524) Sender Reputation Database: Database recovery failed with error -1216 because it encountered references to a database, 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\TransportRoles\data\SenderReputation\pasettings.edb', which is no longer present. The database was not brought to a Clean Shutdown state before it was removed (or possibly moved or renamed). The database engine will not permit recovery to complete for this instance until the missing database is re-instated. If the database is truly no longer available and no longer required, procedures for recovering from this error are available in the Microsoft Knowledge Base or by following the "more information" link at the bottom of this message.

I used ESEUTIL to try and fix the database with no success:
