Have an SBS2011 that I have inherited, problem with the exchange database after a power out. A bad UPS and server crashed. Exchange is working sending and receiving emails OK, but Outlook is constantly connecting and disconnecting. Have ran all the eseutil repairs and it still says that the store is corrupt. Company won't purchase repair S/W.
Because it is only a small DB (8.5GB) with 12 users. I can easily backup up each account.
My question is, can I then delete the database then recreate it with the same DB name and add in the exchange accounts, then import each PST, would that still work with the SBS wizards?
