How would you recover Exchange Server 2003 when the log file is corrupted?
The best way is to bypass the Exchange file system as much as possible, and look at email vaulting, such as provided by Symantec and CA. Here, Exchange pst, edb and stm files and log files are stored in a more comprehensive enterprise manner which can be controlled better, and downtime minimised. However, if you are already struggling because the log file has become corrupted, this advice is a case of locking the door after the horse has bolted. One thing that may well be worth trying is to copy the log files to .old, and then delete the log files and reboot. The log files should be recreated, and the problems with mounting any files that aren't corrupt should go away.
