Hi Alex, you would need to understand what log files are required to bring the database to a clean shutdown state. To do this you would need to run eseutil /mh database.edb. The output should list logs required. Now check the transaction log files folder to check if you have the required log files. If yes, move these transaction log files into a new folder and nagivate cmd to the new folder and run eseutil /r eoo (where e00 is the transaction log sequence. the first three letters in the transaction log file). Mostly E00 is the last transaction log and to check the sequence number, you would need to run eseutil /ml e00.log.

If all log files are present the eseutil /r would run successfully bringing the database to a clean shutdown state. If logs file are missing and you are running exchange 2007, 10 or 13, you can run eseutil /r /a e00 to trigger a lossy recovery. If you are running exchange 2003, the only option you would have would be run do a hard repair by running eseutil /p database.edb.

Also, refer http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb267001(v=exchg.80).aspx

Hope this helps.

I completely agree with jay.vyas84 member, first you need to check clean state of the database using Eseutil /mh command lines



After using this command if you are getting dirty state of the database then you need to check transaction log file statement. Run Eseutil/ml command



If the log file is in unhealthy state then you need to perform both recovery tasks - soft & hard. You need transaction log files for the soft recovery task but as earlier you mention that you have received few log file error messages which related to the missing log files then in my opinion you need to perform hard recovery task using this command - Eseutil/p

Have you tried Eseutil and Isinteg? Both are built-in repair tools in Microsoft Exchange Server. By using these tools, you can repair EDB file. Refer to this blog post for complete information - Repair Exchange Database with an Easy Manual Trick | N. Sem's Blog

Thanks.
