The Database Files in this Storage Are Inconsistent After Offline Defrag

Hello,

I did an offline defrag.  I used the instructions here https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/328804.

In the ESEUTIL utility using the /d /p switches, the original database is not overwritten with the new defragmented database when the offline defragmentation process is completed.  This puts the defragged database in a folder you specify.

After the defrag was done, I moved over the new .edb and .stm files into the C:\Progam Files\EXCHSRVR\MDBDATA directory.

Then I renamed the old files priv1_old.edb and priv1_old.stm.

Then I renamed the new files priv1.edb and priv1.stm.

I restarted the MS exchange info store service, then I tried to mount the info store and that is when I got the error "The Database Files in this Storage Are Inconsistent".  What happened?  Thank you for your help.

I have reverted to the old one for now.  I saved the new file in a temp folder.  Can I run eseutil on the new file in the temp folder without dismounting the store?

Thanks,
