Power cut and exchange 2003
News years eve and given the happy news that the school and the surrounding area had a power cut today.
Long story but i have joined as a network manager for a a few weeks, the Exchange 2003 Server and any other server has no UPS (plus looking at the event viewer previously that the Info Store is corrupted and they haven't backed up for a year!) so i am assuming the worst. Could not get into the school till Tuesday so im planning worst case.
Im thinking of using the dial-tone recovery method by creating a blank database so staff can send receive new emails, then try ESEUTIL to repair the DB and hope in hell it would be ok. Then merge it all back? Would that be good way to go?
I'm hoping when I return to work I boot up Exchange and all will be ok..but hey Im not always that lucky.
Cheers guys and happy new year!
