I'm trying to mount an Exchange 2003 database on a different server but it fails with a corruption error.

I have the edb and stm files, and when using eseutil /mh it says they are in a "Clean Shutdown" state and requires no logs.

To copy the edb and stm files, I dismount the live store and have copied the files using both standard windows explorer and also the eseutil /y command.

The live store and files still mounts fine.

Basically I've:

1) Built a dummy domain (I've tried both a different domain name and the same domain name)
2) Installed Exchange in the *same* organisation name and administrative group
3) Created a blank storage group
4) Created a new mailbox store
5) Ticked the "can be overwritten by a restore" box
6) Copied the old edb and stm files
7) Tried to mount

At this point it says "database files are corrupt"

Then when I run eseutil /mh it says they are in a "Dirty Shutdown" state.

I tried to copy the files using eseutil /y but the same happens.

I've also used a recovery storage group but the same happens.

I've tried eseutil /p and /d but then this just empties the DB files down to a few MB.

There is an error in the eventvwr about page checksum mismatch etc.

Any suggestions as to how I can get this to mount?

Basically I'm trying to mount a copy of the live store in a dummy domain for a project I'm doing.
