Exchange 2010 Restore Storage Group - Too many logs prevents RESTORE STORAGE GROUP (RSG) from being created
Posted on 2014-12-05
I have an Exchange 2010 server that I am trying to create a RESTORE STORAGE GROUP on, but it's failing because there are too many log files. The error that I am getting is:
Failed to connect to target server "MYSERVER1". Error: WMI exception occurred on server 'MSERVER1.internal.mydomain.com': Quota violation
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (:) [New-MailboxDatabase], InvalidOperationException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : 707BD31B,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.SystemConfigurationTasks.NewMailboxDatabase
I have looked into this error, and it is because there are too many logs in the restored EDB and log file bundle. I need to use ESEUTIL I believe to sync the logs into the database, but I am unsure how to do this. I've tried "ESEUTUL /r" and "ESEUTIL /cc" but /r fails and /cc does not have a restore.env file to work with.
The files were restored from Barracuda Backup appliance, and I selected to restore to a folder instead of to a restore storage group. The database restored is about 500GB in size, and the logs were about 300GB more. The restore takes so long that I really cannot restore again to a storage group directly....I just want to know what is the most efficient way to marry the log files into the EDB file? They're all in the same folder.
Help is appreciated...thanks!
