Exchange ESEUtil error 1032 access denied file locked or in use
Posted on 2014-02-02
I'm unable to get "eseutil /MH" command to work on an Exchange database. Running Server 2008 R2 and Exchange 2010.
- Dismounted mailbox database
- Attempted ESEUtil command but got error "Operation terminated with error -1032, JET_errFileAccessDenied, Cannot access file, the file is locked or in use"
I've rebooted the server, checked antivirus/backup systems to see if they may be locking the file, re-mounted/dismounted database again, stopped every Exchange service except information store service; no change.
I ran Process Explorer but was unable to find any process that have a lock on this file. Confirmed this with LockHunter program also.
Verified my account has full control permissions on file.
