Exchange database won't mount

Hello,

we ran out of space on our Exchange 2013 server. After adding extra space to the VM one of our two databases won't mount.

eseutil /mh shows dirty shutdown.


eseutil /ml E01 shows one log has an error - in fact in Windows Explorer it is slightly smaller in size than the rest. There are hundreds of log files and this is the second from last one - the actual last one shows OK, same as the rest.
error cannot read log file header -541

Operation terminated with error -541 JET_errLogFileSizeMismatch, actual log file size does not match JET_paramLogFileSize


How can I get my database to a clean shutdown state? Running the eseutil /r E01 /i /d E:\exchange\database\mbxdb-01
shows the same error as above
Operation terminated with error -541 JET_errLogFileSizeMismatch, actual log file size does not match JET_paramLogFileSize


I am at my wits end. Any help would be most appreciated.

Had to bite the bullet and do eseutil /p

Strangely it only too 4 minutes to run two passes on the database and it ended up in a clean shutdown state. DB is 55 GB! I was expecting it to take 10 hours!

Thanks for your help.
