Unable to mount Exchange 2007 database

After restoring an Exchange 2007 server from a backup to a test ESXi VM I was unable to mount the Exchange mailbox database:
Failed to mount database ‘Mailbox Store’.
Exchange is unable to mount the database that you specified. Specified database: SERVER1\First Storage Group\Mailbox Store; Error code: MapiExceptionJetErrorAttachedDatabaseMismatch: Unable to mount database. (hr=0x80004005, ec=-1216)
To fix this I used:
eseutil -p “Mailbox Store.edb” 
eseutil /r E02 /i
(in the directory that contains the database)

!The first command is said to be able to cause the loss of data. So only run this on a backup database!

  1. Hi Rodrigo,

    Agree with you. Eseutil -p is a destructive command line tool and it removes unreadable or severely damaged database pages permanently. Therefore users have to face data loss after using it. It is highly recommended to make a backup copy before running these tools.
    I just want to add that this data loss problem can be a prevented easily with the help of a third party Exchange database recovery software like Stellar Phoenix Exchange recovery.

  2. Good points. thanks for sharing. A severely damaged Exchange database file can not be mounted direct to MS Exchange Server. I fixed this issue with the help of this advance and popular Exchange recovery tool. To download it, click here.

    The software has been developed with triple scanning modes to fix the issues in Exchange database files !

  4. Excellent, thank you.

    Check the new methods/tool when
    Eseutil didn't work.

    I have an article that gives more information: http://exchangeserver.tumblr.com/post/44851518519/how-to-repair-exchange-databases-with

  5. A really good write up. Must say I had good experience with EdbMails Edb to PST recovery tool - which provides a complete solution to recover Exchange Database (EDB) files. It is quick and uses deep scan to recover most data out of even corrupted databases.It supports public, private folder recovery. And also supports migration to Live exchange and Office 365. Archive mailbox migration is also supported by edbmails.

  6. Great, thanks for sharing this command, I tested this exchange server recovery tool ( https://softcart.wordpress.com/exchange-mailbox-recovery/ ) which helps to fix all issues and mount the exchange mailbox database and extract single or multiple mailboxes from backups created by NTBackup, Symantec, VERITAS, HP Backup.
