Hi.  I have an exchange 2007 server and after a "compact" was done on it's virtual instance.  I seem to have come into a dirty shutdown state and now cannot mount it.

State: Dirty Shutdown
Log Required: 489316-489335 (0x77764-0x77777)
Log Committed: 0-489336 (0x0-0x77778)

Running recovery fails on this command:

eseutil /r e00 /l "E:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox\First Storage Group\bak" /d "E:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox\First Storage Group\Mailbox Database.edb" /a

After testing and trying to re-run the log files I get an error:

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 0.328 seconds.

All the log files check "Ok" on eseutil /ml E00

There is NOTHING on the web of how to bypass this or even just take a loss of the 5 hours it was down and get it mounted again.

I do not want to run a eseutil /p for fear of even more damage.  

Does anybody know how to get rid of the attachment inconsistency and get this mounted again.

I don't have enough disk space to even do all the defrags etc as it builds an entire db in-line.

crud...need some help:-(
