log file lost, unable to mount database RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have lost some log (server crash..) files and I cannot mount the database.

    I tried eseutil /p but it didn't help.

    It doesn't matter if I loose some data (the uncomitted data in the log files).

    Thanks.

  • Hi

    Please try /I after ESEUTIL /P

    eg

    ESEUTIL /P XXX.edb /I

    Cheers

  • 1. Do you have a copy of the database BEFORE you ran eseutil /p on it?

    2.  Have you checked your event logs on that server?  If the crash was caused by something in the disk subsystem going south then you DO NOT want to run eseutil /P on that database since it could cause more damage.  If this is the case you want to fix that disk issue ASAP but also if possible make a copy of the Exchange Database to an alternate location.

    3. If you want to access the DB without having to roll the logs check out Lucid8's DigiScope http://www.lucid8.com/product/digiscope.asp which will allow you to roll the logs, do a repair or better yet do a Forensic Mount to get to the data without doing a repair or rollup.

  • Thank you for these suggestions.

    The crash was caused by a power issue(unclean shutdown). I don't have any backup.

    Is there any solution using the exchange bultin Tools?
