Exchange 2010 Database Dismounted, Corrupted
Posted on 2013-12-30
Had a serious power surge combined with an outage.
When all came back online, I had several I.T. issues. The big one was our Exchange database dismounted. Using Exchange 2010 SP3, RU4.
I ran the eseutil /mh command and found it was a dirty shutdown.
Then I ran eseutil /p to repair the database.
Database repair completed successfully.
I then ran a chkdisk /R on the server itself (but not within eseutil - should I?).
Database still would not mount, so I moved all the logs to another folder. Then the database mounted.
Next, the Transport Service would not stay started. To fix this I renamed the SenderReputation folder, restarted the Transport Service, and it worked.
Now - many issues. In my e-mail I lost all my inbox items, another user is getting sending errors "Event ID 10030" MSExchangeIS Mailbox Store "mismatch was detected between a view of the folder and the actual contents." Still other users are having odd issues here and there.
My diagnosis is that my database shell is corrupt and I need to create a new one. What do you guys think?
If you think this is what I need to do, I'd appreciate any reliable links on how this is best done.
