Exchange Server Repair and Restoration
Have you ever opened up your Microsoft Exchange server just to find that a much unwanted server error message has popped up? If you have, don’t worry, you’re definitely not alone. This actually happens much more than you probably realize.
Generally, the main reason that these error messages occur is due to certain data that has been lost or the corruption of the Exchange Server’s database files. When an error messages occurs, one of the main problems that you are presented with is the inability to access certain information or data that is stored in Outlook by the specific corrupted files. In order to obtain this data, you typically will have to restore the Exchange Server to where it was before the files were corrupted, which usually requires specific backup files. If you have not been able to create a backup, you will have to try another option.
Before giving up on restoring the computer by yourself and bringing it to a third party computer repair shop, you should try to use the “Eseutil” utility first. By attempting the Eseutil utility procedure, you will actually be repairing the entire database rather than repairing it.
Let’s take a look at an example:
Say that you just turned on your computer and you receive an error message that is notifying you that your Exchange Server access is limited due to corrupted files. Once you have looked at the message and determined the exact type of event that caused the problem, computer type, ID, category and time, you will also receive an in-depth failure description. The description will include specific details about the corrupted files, their location and where they were removed from. In addition, the explanation will inform you of the main cause of the error message that was received. It’s important to know that, while error messages typically occur from a lost or corrupted file, a message can also happen when files have been removed from their original location or have been renamed.
Steps to Help Resolve Error Message Issues
1. First try using the Eseutil utility command in order to attempt Exchange Server database repair.
2. If the Eseutil command does not work, restore the database by using the backup.
3. If the backup is not accessible, try to use a different Exchange Server program that is available to both repair and recover the database.
The Exchange Server repair and restore program is an extremely useful resource when it comes to dealing with different error messages. If you don’t currently own the software, it’s relatively easy to find and could be the difference between bringing your computer to a repair company or restoring it by yourself.
