I'm running Exchange 2013 in a VM in Server 2012 R2 environment.
Had a power outage and one of my two databases are failed.
I searched and the most common issue has to do with the index. So I stopped the two services MSExchangeFastSearch and HostControler, deleted the directory that was in the Database folder, restarted the directory. After about 10 minutes, the status of both databases (even the healthy one) changed to unknown and then back to their original states, unmounted/failed and mounted/healthy.
I did it a second time, but nothing changed.
So I read about the Eseutil command, but I wanted to check and see if anyone had any advice before going there? Did I miss something?
If I have the to use the Eseutil command, can someone recommend a good link?
In the System log, the only real error is: A fatal alert was received from the remote endpoint. The TLS protocol defined fatal alert code is 46 (guessing that are the clients trying to communicate?)
In the application log it's a whole different story, tons of event IDs with the common theme of errors accessing the Mailbox Database, event IDs 1009, 474.
An interesting error is 454: Database recovery/restore failed with unexpected error - 1018.
