Dear Experts,

I have a client with an Exchange 2013 server, I can get in the ECP but not OWA. Upon further investigation i have discoverd the database isn't mounted. When i try to mount the database via powershell i get this message:

Failed to mount database "Mailbox Database 0374281013". Error: An Active Manager operation failed. Error: The database
action failed. Error: Operation failed with message: MapiExceptionDatabaseError: Unable to mount database.

I have tried restarting the services, checked eseutil (clean shutdown), made a copy of the db and ran a repair with /p. it claimed to have fixed the some corruption but alas the DB won't mount.

If someone has encountered this, please let me know what you did to fix it. I just need to export the mailboxes now as they have gone to Office 365.

Try moving the log files to a different location before trying to mount the database. Suggestion is to make a backup before you attempt this.
