I have a 2003 exchange DB that i cannot mount and i need to run eseutil but i have never done this before - I found this article:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/KbView/906148



that explains how to do it but I have hit a question not addressed in the article:

i first ran eseutil and verified the integrity:

eseutil /mh "C:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb"

 and it did say it was in a State: Dirty Shutdown

Next I ran rapair:

eseutil /p "C:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb"

and got this error and dont know what to do now....

you need to import log file into database (assuming it is still there)

eseutil /r /l /d


Please follow this great solution:

Running ESEutil /p is a hard recovery and if you use this method there is a potential for loss of data after the procedure is completed. Try performing a soft recovery first eseutil /r <referencing the log files directory>
