Restoring Exchange 5.5 Private and public folders

Here is the situation. Running Exchange 2003 & 5.5 Public folders puked during PF migration We got about 75% on the email to the new server but lost all permissions. Had to reset these Now we have lost the public folders on the 5.5 server We restored using Veritas Backup Exec 8.5 Public and private folders now are reporting inconsistent databases afterthe restore. We have turned off all services and tried to compact the folders. We get errors compacting so I have tried to run a repair using the eseutil function. This fails as well. I am running out of ideas to work with. I am thinking about removing the original 5.5 server and rebuilding it from the ground up. Can I do this and re intro it to the new 2003 environment as a 5.5 server? Any ideas on what I can do next? Thanks for your help & suggestions. Tom

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You will need to read up on “ISINTEG”

The Microsoft Exchange Server information store cannot start if the globally unique identifier (GUID) for the information store does not match the GUID stored in the Windows NT Registry and the directory. This can occur if the Microsoft Exchange Server has been restored from an offline backup.

In patch mode, ISINTEG replaces GUIDs, resetting the entries in the database, directory and registry. It also patches information used in replication to prevent incorrect backfilling. This completes the restore operation and allows the information store to start again.

Hope this helps.
