have an SBS 2011, exchange 2010

last week I moved the exchange DB to a new array.

Unfortunately this morning I tried to add a new backup disk and wasn't paying attention, and the backup wizard only saw the new array rather than the new backup disk and formatted it

So I have run a low level recovery and recovered the DB, however it will not mount

I have run

eseutil /p
eseutil /r
eseutil /ml

and a heap of other stuff with out success.

So now I am trying to create a new DB just to get the company up and running. The DB is up, however I don't know how to move the user mailboxes to it as the old DB is off line


HELP!!

If you have an SBS BU you can just restore exchange by itself (Restore > Applications only> exchange)
(Hope you restored data after format is good enough, worth a try)
Hope that helps,

Do PST files of all mailboxes on the local machines ASAP.

Thanks for the responses

Got the databases (mailbox and public) back online in the end. I re-ran eseutil /p and then had to delete the transaction logs. It mean that they lost about an hours worth of email, but they were OK with that.

I can also confirm that if the email is stored in Outlook, if you bring Exchange back online after a failure, emails are removed from Outlook if there weren't present in the exchange DB, which is a pain!

Glad you got it going.
It is a pain and that's why I suggested doing the pst's. It's just a fail safe.
Thanks
