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

Try to restore it again from the backup, before stating any process of Exchange mailbox database recovery users need to check the state of EDB database using Eseutil/mh command. After, running above-mentioned command if users find the dirty shutdown state of the database, then recovery of the Exchange mailbox database should be first or run eseutil/p on the database to recover the database from the existing log file then repair the database corruption.

Try the following solution:

1. Look folder c:\\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA
2. Copy last E000xxx.log, E00.log and E00.chk to other place
3. Delete E00.log
4. Rename last E000xxx.log to E00.log
5. Execute c:\\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA>"c:\\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin\Eseutil" /r e00
5. You may need this procedures with following order: c:\\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA>"c:\\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin\Eseutil" /g

c:\\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA>"c:\\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin\Eseutil" /p
c:\\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA>"c:\\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin\Eseutil" /d

Hope it will work for you.
