    Crash on a server Exchange 2003

    Hi guys!
    We had a crash on a server Exchange 2003. After that we made a copy of the mdbdata. Of course we reinstalled it. Now we're trying to mount the mailbox store (Priv1.edb 5 GB) but we receive this error:
    The database files in this storage is inconsistent.
    Next, following the MS article n. 327156 Eseutil.exe says that we have a "Dirty shutdown" database
    "Eseutil /p" remains in "stand by" on "repair damaged database" step at 90% (the day after was still at 90%).

    Have just spent most of this week getting our e2k server up and running again. What about backups? We spent 2 days running eseutil /p and isinteg - finally got the information stores mounted but found approx 50% of users had absolutely nothing in their accounts.

    Then resorted to restoring from backup (we used MS backup)- was surprisingly straightforward and hassle free.

    If you haven't backups and eseutil /p will not run you will need to try a eseutil /r to get the databases into a 'consistent' or clean shutdown state before it will let you run the /p option. Our database was 12Gb and the /p took 8 hours to run.

    As a fallback you can try to use another tool like Exchange Server Recovery Toolbox for email recovery exchange server 2003. Here is the link to their website.
    After that you'll need to do an isinteg - but be aware there can be significant data loss.
    Good luck.
