Sorry if this posted the first time, but I never saw it come across the wire here, so I'm having to use an alternate mail account.
Got a problem with dir.edb here, need to see if anyone has a solution. Mail server (5.5 on NT sp 6) went down hard. Brought it back up and now the directory service won't start. I ran the eseutil program against dir, pub, and priv and only dir cam back as inconsistent. So I went to run eseutil /r /ds on the file, but it keeps looking at > c:\exch... when the files are in d:\exch... I enherited this mail server when I started here so it makes me fearful when I see in the MS tech notes that the logs are hardcoded to look at c: and I don't see a switch to use to tell it change dir, so my question is, is there a work around. All of the .edb files are stored in d, not in c:. I tried backing up a copy of the dsadata file, then moving that to c:. The recovery util did run, but when I moved it back to d:, it still errors out.with a 550 error I've looked on the list and several other sources and have found at least 4 different ways to possibly fix this, but I don't want to make matters worse.
