It was after a power outage, two mailbox databases where having the same issue, after a eseutil /r and /p one of them was able to connect. This one however did not.
The database in in clean shutdown.
I only found one post about the ec=-344 that mentions a timestamp. But they never went into resolving it.
Running on Microsoft Server 2008 R2 and Exchange 2010
