1. Exchange Recovery Woes
*sigh* I think I got myself into some hot doodoo here.
A company that I used to work for has a SBS4.5 server. Recently the power
went out. When the power came back on and they went to turn the server back
on, it wouldnt - turns out the power supply died.
So they purchased a new power supply and installed it. When they brought the
server up, Exchange wouldnt come up. The guy then noticed that the drive
that the database files were on wasnt showing up in the drive list. So, he
shut the box down and saw the drive not connected (data wise). It was then
reconnected and the box powered back on. Well feces hit the fan and Exchange
didn't like the database anymore.
So he did some of his own research and backed up priv.edb and pub.edb and
reinstalled exchange and got the place back up and running without their old
He then got in contact with me to see if I could solve the problem.
I went in today and ran ESEUTIL /P to repair the database files.
I then ran ISINTEG -FIX on the database files afterwards. When the utility
hit step 5 or close to scanning the priv.edb file, it dumped out and
reported the following error: JET_errObjectNotFound.
I checked the integrity of the files and they turned out ok. I also used the
/mh switch (forget what that does exactly at the moment) and it reported
that the database files were consistent (they werent initially before I
started the repair process).
So I ignored the error and ran the ISINTEG -PATCH and reported the same
So I ignored THAT error and tried to start the remaining stopped Exchange
services and it came back with Error 1011.
Does anybody have any suggestions on how to get everyones mail and contacts
back? I do not have a backup to lean back to (i know....*tsk tsk*)
Any help would be extremely appreciated. There are a lot of people crossing
their fingers for me.....
