Eseutil /mh - database is locked or in use
Posted on 2014-03-30
Recovering from Exchange failure. We have DB backup and all logs. I want to perform soft recovery using:
eseutil /r e00 /l "E:\Exchange Logs" /d "D:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox\First Storage Group"
But I don't know which logs are required.
So I try and run eseutil /mh but it says:
Operation terminated with error -1032 (JET_errFileAccessDenied, Cannot access fi
le, the file is locked or in use) after 20.30 seconds.
How can I 'unlock' so I can run /mh and see which log files are required??
