Deleting corrupt database Exchange 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have a corrupt mailbox database on my Exchange 2007 CCR mailbox server.

    I have moved all the users out of it into a new database, Replication is fine.

    I have now dismounted the corrupt database.

    I have suspended replication for this storage group/database.

    From here, what is the correct procedure to delete the database, and it's storage group from the active and passive nodes of my CCR mailbox servers.

     

    Thanks

    Dave

  • What I would do would be to delete the database file and logs on both nodes.  Then I'd mount the database, which creates a new empty database and base logs.  Then I would update storage group copy to initiate seeding.
