Public data store will not mount

I have recently converted a domain controller from a physical machine to a VM using VMware converter.  After the conversion even though the data stores for the Exchange were not mounted during the conversion the public database will not mount.  I have tried running Eseutil /mh (Shows clean) Ran eseutil /r/l/d completed successfully still will not mount, ran Eseutil /p completed successfully, then I ran eseutil /d still will not mount.  The error message is the same as when I started the database shows clean shutdown as it's state.  Can someone please help?
Below is a copy of the error after attempting to mount.

Can you provide any event error.

Also after repair and defrag please move/remove all the log and checkpoint files. Then mount the database.

Could you tell me where they are normally located, and do I just delete them?

Go to EMC and navigate to Organization Configuration > Mailbox.
Click the Database Management tab, and then select the public folder database.
In the action pane, click Properties.
General tab to view or configure the properties of a public folder database.

OR run Get-PublicFolderDatabase | Format-List in Exchange management shell and check the log file path
Or run Get-publicfolderDatabase “DatabaseName” | FL Name,*Path*

Hi scormier1,
My advice is to never convert a DC. You should depromote it, convert it and promote again if you really have the need to convert this machine, if not install a brand new DC on a VM, and depromote and shutdown the old physical one. A lot of issues could happen, and sometimes really difficult ones that you can't get rid of.
I know it is too late and I am sorry for you, but maybe it could help for the next time.
