Exchange Server 2003: Disaster Recovery and Database Repair Steps
 
Open a DOS prompt and navigate to the exchsrvr/bin directory.

For the Private Information Store (replace the path to reflect your environment):

     eseutil /p "c:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb"
 
     eseutil /d "c:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb"
 

     The previous command defrags the database and may take a long time.
     You will also need a quantity of free space on the drive holding
     your temp directory that is at least as large as your database.
 
     eseutil /mh "c:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb"
 
 
For the Public Information Store (replace the path to reflect your environment):
 
     eseutil /p "c:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\pub1.edb"
 
 
    eseutil /d "c:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\pub1.edb"
 
     eseutil /mh "c:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\pub1.edb"

 
If the State for each database is "Clean Shutdown" only then delete all the files except for .edb and .stm in the database folder (You can mount the stores and then dismount them before running the next command)
 
     isinteg –s <servername> -fix –test alltests
    
(The Microsoft Information Store service should be running)
 
Mount the stores.
