AFter a server crash I did a restore of the datad\ drives where the exchange DB resided.. Everything seems to work except t]OUtlook clients cannot connect.
When I check the Exchange console the databases are dismounted. When I ry to mount them I get the following message.
What can I do ?

Did you reboot the exchange server that they are failing to mount? If not reboot the exchange first.
Is the database edb file in clean shutdown when you check the header of it

Eseutil /mh file path/db.edb

Commented:
They lost 2 drives at the same time on a RAID 5 - I had to recreate the array and do a restore from Win NT backup.
Where do I find the name of the log file to run edb recovery ?
Commented:
I eventually restored from an earlier tape backup and got my DB back - lost a couple of days but most emails were spooled at proofpoint. So no real loss
