Old Exchange server got killed by an idiot
Had to do full reload and cannot mount the old .edb files
all I have is .edb files and .log files
need 2 extract all emails in these and exmerge will not do so.
No backups to restore from except my priv1.edb file and its log's , Due to fresh/full reload exchange sees this as a new server.
I can find plenty tools to do this but the pricing is obviously designed for the extermely desperate in the USA as I could buy a brand new pc for the same price as a once off job I need done.
Microsoft confuse me on this as all the demo's I have tried (3rd party tools) can and do show me all my user mailboxes whilst they insist its impossible to do the way I plan to.
I would have thought that when 1 does a search for .edb recovery and get 361,000 replies microsoft would have by now see this as an actual problem???
and paying the equivalent of my monthly groceries for a telephone call is pure insanity.
Time I go back 2 linux.
i see that the classic problem,
look at your problem if you have the .edb and .log or from the backup
restore both to altertive dir, now you want extract the mailbox
use Office Recovery for Exchange Server to do so,
or you want to mount the edb to the exchange
the first you need use isinteg.exe for integrity fix then the eseutil.exe
please see the parameter with /?
i have use to the both tool the fix the exchange for my customers...its work
Don't Worry about it.
I fixed my problems without having microsoft money blackhole suck me dry
without having 2 buy any "3rd party programs"
infact without any help from microsoft or any of its other "3rd party" associates getting any cash out of me
and 100% certain that at the first oppourtunity I will be converting all my pc's and servers at work to linux.
Thanks 4 the nitemares microsoft and please stop sucking people dry, you have enough money already!
Loaded an old backup which the exchange server software exmerge etc all told me was corrupt and would not let me work with (it was however mounting). Went to a client pc, logged in with each user name, backed up 2 pst.
Hope that helps, If not see u on the linux forums.
It's probably a little bit late for the original author of this question (5 years too late.. heh..) but I found the article below which matches the reported problem, that is if you were looking to get it operational again with Exchange.
It seems that your data gets victim of some unwanted threats due to which you are unable to open mailbox files and want to extract mailboxes from .edb files. To overcome such problems, users have the option to use various tools, available in the market. In this regard, here I would like to point out a very special tool which can help you in this matter certainly, i.e. EDB to PST tool. This tool has the potential to extract mailboxes from .edb files ever in high corruption issues and as well gives the option to users to save the files into PST format. Free version of the tool is also available to check the software potential and relevancy. Check out this link http://www.edbtopst.org/ to convert EDB to PST files to get desired result.Sean, I hope this solution is capable enough to sort out your problem.

Microsoft provides some free utilities, named as Eseutil.exe, Exmerge.exe and Export-Mailbox. These tools convert EDB to PST and extract the user mailboxes in .PST file format. However in case of severely corruption, these tools may fails. The best way to handle this situation is using some advanced third party EDB to PST Converter software. You can use Free Trial version for extracting edb mailboxes.

Exchange Server is an email recovery software which recovers inaccessible and deleted emails from MS Exchange Server database files and
convert edb to pst file. The edb recovery software efficiently converts .EDB files to working .PST files through which emails of MS Exchange Server can be viewed with Microsoft Outlook email client.

If your EDB file of Exchange Server Database has been damaged due to an error, then to get rid of this situation you should try to use a perfect EDB to PST conversion tool. There are several software available Exchange Server Recovery that can easily repair and convert EDB file to PST file within few click. For more details visit http://email-converter-tool.blogspot.in
If you are using Exchange 2003, then you can use Exmerge to export EDB file to PST and if you are using Exchange 2007,2010 or 2013, then you can use powershell scripts (ExportMailboxRequest & New-ExportMailboxRequest cmdlets) to export EDB file to PST file. But if these methods fails to export EDT to PST, then you are not left with any other option other than using third party converters like Stellar EDB to PST converter, PCVita Converter, Datanumen converter. All of these tools are good but out of these, I have used EDB to PST converter by Stellar. You can try other converters as well and choose the one which meets your expectations:
