Short description: new client, old hardware and "duh" software.  upgrade is/was scheduled for next week

The server shutdown yesterday and exchange would not start.  Tried doing ese /r but file was continually "in use".

skipped to ese repair, then ese defrag

now ese shows databases are "clean shutdown"

trying to run isinteg -s <servername> -fix -test alltest, but no luck.  

Had lots of trouble getting Exchange System Attendant and Exchange Info Store services to start.
Services are now started.

Questions:  
Should the databases be offline or online for isinteg to work?  
Where is a detailed log file?  ( I tried using -l c:\logfile.txt, but no luck)

When I try to mount the stores they say they can't find the database, but when I browse from System Manager the files are there.  

Thanks for the help, I'll keep searching.

The database should be dismounted to run the isinteg to work
eseutil just provides defragment and basic health checks.

c:\program files\exchsrvr\bin>isinteg -s servername -fix -test alltests

Get the output of the eseutil and isinteg test
