Eseutil.exe utility in exchange server



Applies to: Exchange Server 2007 SP2, Exchange Server 2007 SP1, Exchange Server 2007 Topic Last Modified: 2006-09-14
The Exchange Server Database Utilities (Eseutil.exe) is a tool that you can use to verify, modify, and repair an Exchange database file. When a database is corrupt or damaged, you can restore data from backup or repair it using Eseutil. Eseutil is a command-line tool that works with the Extensible Storage Engine (ESE), database files, and log files associated with a Microsoft Exchange database. Eseutil is located in the Exchange default install folder, which is :\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Bin.
Eseutil can be used against any ESE database in Exchange Server 2007. In the past, Eseutil could only be used with mailbox and public folder ESE databases, but with Exchange 2007, Eseutil can be used with ESE databases on the Exchange 2007 Hub Transport and Edge Transport server roles as well.
Note: Streaming (.stm) files are not supported by Eseutil in Exchange 2007 databases. However, Eseutil supports .stm files in older Exchange databases. If you are working with databases in versions of Exchange that precede Exchange 2007, use the Eseutil tool that is associated with that version of the Exchange database.
Eseutil can be run on one database at a time from the command prompt. You can use Eseutil to perform a range of database tasks including repair, offline defragmentation, and integrity checks. Table 1 lists the most common Eseutil switches.
Eseutil examines the structure of the database tables and records at the low level of the database (Ese.dll). You can use the defragmentation mode to compact a database offline. Other Eseutil modes such as repair, recovery, and restore can be used to repair a corrupt or damaged database. Modes like integrity, file dump, and checksum can be used to verify the state of a database.
Table 1 Common Eseutil switches

Eseutil mode Switch Description Defragmentation

Defragments the database offline but leaves the new, defragmented database in the temporary location with or without overwriting the original database. This mode reduces the gross size on the disk of the database (.edb) by discarding most empty pages and by rebuilding indexes.
Repairs a corrupt offline database by discarding any pages that cannot be fixed. In repair mode, the Eseutil tool fixes individual tables but does not maintain the relationships between tables. Use the Information Store Integrity Checker (Isinteg.exe) tool to check and fix links between tables if the repaired database is a mailbox or public folder database.
Displays restore log file (Restore.env file) and controls hard recovery after restoration from legacy online backups.
Replays transaction log files or rolls them forward to restore a database to internal consistency or to bring an older copy of a database up to date.
Verifies the page level and ESE level logical integrity of the database. Does not verify integrity at the application level. Application-level logical integrity can be verified with Isinteg for mailbox and public folder databases.
File Dump
Displays headers of database files, transaction log files, and checkpoint files. Also displays database page header information, and database space allocation and metadata.
Verifies checksums on all pages in the database, log files, and checkpoint files.
Copy File
Performs a fast copy of very large files.

ما هى ال FSMO Roles

  بأختصار ال FSMO Roles هى اختصار ل Flexible Single Operation Master و هى عباره عن 5 Roles فى ال Active Directory و هما بينقسموا لقسمين A - Forest Roles 1- Schema Master Role و هى ال Role اللى بتتحكم فى ال schema و بيكون فى Schema Master Role واحد فى ال Forest بيكون موجود على Domain Controller و بيتم التحكم فيها من خلال ال Active Directory Schema Snap in in MMC بس بعد ما يتعمل Schema Register بواسطه الامر التالى من ال Cmd regsvr32 schmmgmt.dll 2-Domin Naming Master و هى ال Role المسئوله عن تسميه ال Domains و بتتأكد ان مفيش 2 Domain ليهم نفس الاسم فى ال Forest و بيتم التحكم فيها من خلال ال Active Directory Domains & Trusts B- Domain Roles 1-PDC Emulator و هى ال Role اللى بتتحكم فى ال Password change فى ال domain و بتتحكم فى ال time synchronization و هى تعتبر المكان الافتراضى لل GPO's و هى تعتبر Domain Role مش زى الاتنين الاولانيين و بيتم التحكم فيها من خلال ال Active directory Users & Computers عن طريق عمل كليك يمين على اسم الدومين و نختار operations master فى تاب ال PDC Emu

Recreating a missing VMFS datastore partition in VMware vSphere 5.x and 6.x

    Symptoms A datastore has become inaccessible. A VMFS partition table is missing.   Purpose The partition table is required only during a rescan. This means that the datastore may become inaccessible on a host during a rescan if the VMFS partition was deleted after the last rescan. The partition table is physically located on the LUN, so all vSphere hosts that have access to this LUN can see the change has taken place. However, only the hosts that do a rescan will be affected.   This article provides information on: Determining whether this is the same problem Resolving the problem   Cause This issue occurs because the VMFS partition can be deleted by deleting the datastore from the vSphere Client. This is prevented by the software, if the datastore is in use. It can also happen if a physical server has access to the LUN on the SAN and does an install, for example.   Resolution To resolve this issue: Run the  partedUtil  command on the host with the issues and verify if your output
