Exchange 5.5 can blow me....

I've spent a good 12 hours in the past 2 days working on this stupid Exchange 5.5 box. Somehow it got a virus, and someone deleted some log files, which caused the information store to go corrupt.

I tried repairing it, but no luck.

I've finally restored from tape backup the entire information store, but it's still not starting. So I'm running database repair utilities, to syncronize and repair the databases. Each one take about 30min to 2 hours, and i've got 4 more to run.

yayyyy

ES55 is my worst enemy.... i was glad as fuck when Exchange 2000 came out!

NT4 & EX55 suck period. EX55 on Win2k sucks even worse

I'm working on mine right now from home. I get in from camping with msgs that the exchange 5.5 box on 2k is down. Log into VPN look at event viewer and sure as shit the IS is failing. 4 gb free space on c drive and 70gb free on the partition with the stores. So far the priv store has damaged tables and the 2.4g zeon box is still cranking trying to fix it.

Figures this box has been up for a year and hasnt been pissy till now. Hopefully I can fix it from home and have a great start on monday.
