I have a SBS2011 server running Exchange 2010. From another SBS2011 server, I ran Windows Server Backup to create to an external USB HD. Then on my SBS2011 server, I ran RESTORE in Windows Server Backup and restored EXCHANGE DATABASE into a temporary folder.
When I ran eseutil /mh "New_Mailbox.edb", the State is "Dirty Shutdown" as expected.
Then I ran eseutil /ml E00 and it showed All Log files are OK and the job runs successfully.
Then I ran eseutil /r E00 /l "C:\ExchangeRecovery\New_Mailbox" /d "C:\ExchangeRecovery\New_Mailbox\New_Mailbox.edb" /i and it runs successfully.
However when I ran eseutil /mh, the State is still "Dirty Shutdown".
With that I have two questions:
(1) Somehow I need to change the State to "Clean Shutdown" before I can mount it. What can I try?
(2) Is it possible to mount this exchange database (that came from another SBS2011 in completely different domain/network) on my SBS2011 server?
