Exchange 2010 Database will not mount

We have an Exchange server that will not mount databases after a crash.  We have run eseutil /p on both public folders and mailbox database but both produce the same error:

--------------------------------------------------------
Microsoft Exchange Error
--------------------------------------------------------
Failed to mount database 'Public Folder Database 1043519527'.

I tried moving the database to another location and it gave me the same error.  I forgot the first rule of IT, *always reboot first*.  I did that and they mounted successfully.  I imagine that the repair fixed the corruption, then the reboot took care of the other issues.  The error was a strange one though and since there were no solutions from Google I wasn't sure where to go.  

BTW, they did not have a backup at all, so this could have been really bad.  We will definitely recommend a backup ASAP!

Did you have to completely reload your server? Can you give a bit more information as to how it crashed and what you've done so far to recover?

Client said it locked up and they rebooted it. Then they called 5 days later to say that emails hadn't worked. Tried to mount the database and it failed, so ran integrity check and it failed. Ran the repair which fixed errors, integrity check passes but still does not mount with the error I posted. I couldn't find any details really on that error so sort of stumped now.

It seems log file has been removed. Now, just shutdown database and move the Checkpoint file & all log files to different folder, and try again to mount the database. In case if database hasn't shutdown, repair or restore the database.
