Hello,

Due to a failed RAID system, I had to bring back our server from a full backup that I made a little earlier. I have installed Windows + did a complete restore of Windows and the System State + restored the Exchange directories (except MDBDATA).

After the restore, everything works, except parts of exchange due to no mountable database. The service ExchangeIS can be started Exchange MTA stacks not.

After restoring the databases with NTBACKUP, the stores wont mount. I get an error that the logs have a bad signature. Running eseutil /cc manually also displays this error.

The error is:

Operation terminated with error -939523486 (Existing log file has bad signature.)

I already switched on "This database can be overwritten by a restore". Permissions on the directory MDBDATA seem to be ok.

What can I do to get my mail back?

THanks for your help!

Wim
