The server didn't crash, it wouldn't boot to the desktop, found the store service was hanging it up from booting to desktop. So i set the store service to start delayed and i was able to boot to the desktop now, but this was after i restored the c: drive. the database is located on the D:

Exchange Databases will not mount if they are in a Dirty shutdown state. Run the following command.

eseutil /mh <databasepath.edb>

You can also use the eseutil /p as a hard recover. This would be a last restore, if you cannot get the database to a clean shutdown state..

Also take a look at the following link for additional details.

Are you running this command prompt with Admin Privileges? (Run As)?

What is the error message you are getting? You also need to type the full database path as well.

eseutill /mh "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\MailboxDatabase 0834048268\Mailbox Database 0834048268.edb"

When you run this it will show you all of the details. You can also do eseutil /mh /? for additional details.

You will also see an error message stating why the details did not display. file locked etc.

I have looked at the screenshot and you require "quotes" around your file path because it has spaces in the file name. Add the quotes and run the command again.

This is because some of the logs are missing.

Have you tried using the eseutil /p <database.edb>?

Is did the eseutil /mh state that the shutdown was dirty?

after running the /i it states successful but when you run the /mh it still states it is in dirty shutdown, then i ran the /r without the /i at the end and it said successful. Run the /mh and still states in dirty shutdown.

If you do not have the appropriate logs to restore you might have to use the eseutil /p hard recover.
