With referring to http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/Q_28573464.html.

I do encountered another whereby when i try to run eseutl /r, the message: Operation terminated with error -543 (JET_errRequiredLogFilesMissing, The required log files for recovery is missing.)

However the requires are present:

If you're missing log files then you can try running the following commands to get repair your database to get it to a working state:
First of all make a backup of the files if this is your only working copy. The below commands may damage your Exchange database beyond repair. Although the risk of this is minimal, it's always good to have a backup - even if it takes an hour or two to transfer them to an external USB drive. It will save your butt if you damage your database and log files.
Run eseutil /p to perform a repair operation on the database.
Run eseutil /d to defragment and rebuild the indexes on the database.
Lastly use isinteg to repair the database and address any corruption.
Remove all log files including checkpoint files then try and mount the database.

Refer to these articles if you need more information on the switches to use with eseutil and isinteg:

Problem solved.

eseutil /ml showed that all of the logs were correct. I ended up removing the checkpoint file and eseutil /r ran succesfully
