Possibly going to retry a p2v of exchange server 2003. Not 100% sure yet because last time the destination server ended up with a corrupt dbase and I spent hours with eseutil and while it told me in the end that the dbase was ok -it refused to mount the store and I brought back the original server. I suspect it will corrupt again -however the source server is working fine. Absolutely all exchange, https, IIS admin and other sql services were stopped and disabled. What could be done to fix it if it corrupted again? Everything else seemed to work ok -just could not mount the Information store.. thanks.
