Looks like DB is not in a clean shutdown state. Use eseutil /mh to check this

Using recovery mode of eseutil bring the database to a clean shutdown state. eseutil /p

@  gesolink

When one of us asks you for more information it is not because we like wasting your time or ours it is becuase we need more information.

Just saying did a restore, all errors are shown does NOT answer the questions asked at all.

Restored what? The exchange Server? A single Database file? The whole Data?
What about the logs?

error code 515 means that required transaction logs are missing which is why it can't be mounted
have you done anything with the file system as far as manually deleting or moving transaction logs or checkpoint file?
