Microsoft Information Store won't start (MS Server 2008 R2)
We had an unexpected shutdown on our email server. Upon reboot, the Information Service was not running. When I attempted to restart I got an error "Windows could not start the Microsoft Exchange Information Service". I then when to regedit and typed MSExchangeADTopology into the Depend on Pane and rebooted. That did not fix the problem and we still have no email access.
Any assistance would be appreciated!
- your log files have no more drive space left
- your EDB file does not have any more drive space left
- your EDB file is in a dirty shut down state
Run the following
Eseutil /mh (check if the database is in a dirty state) if it is proceed
Eseutil /r first (if this does not get the database out of Dirty Shutdown) proceed
Eseutil /p (this is a hard repair and should only be done as a last restort)
If ESE does not correct this database then I would recommend using Kernel Data Receovery for Exchange server
This software will do a low level repair of the database without losing data.
