We have Exchange 2007 and every two days or 1 day once when the users open the outlook it get stuck in loading profile screen. On a PC that is powered on and when outlook is already opened on the PC it says the folder was last updated on at 4:00am. Does this mean there is a problem with exchange database? and because of this the issue is happening.
I logged into the exchange server and the information was still running. We have VMware and Veeam backup are successful. .
Parallely we also run Backupassist backup and when I ran this backup, it completed with Major warnings. Please see the attached snapshot of the error.
Error BA850- Exchange database consistency check failed and a link was given to the solution.
