repair completed stated it found fixed problems; then when I try to mount the database I get:
Mailbox Database

Please run eseutil /mh and check the status of the database is in dirty or clean shutdown
If it is in clean shutdown then move all the logs to the new folder and then try to mount.

thanks R--R
I am running eseutil /g so I will have to wait
should I have moved the log files from their location before running the repair?
