Exchange Database Corruption Again

Last Thursday night, the same Exchange Database gone "bad" again. However, this time round we are lucky enough to restart all databases without the need to restore. The next day, we contacted Microsoft PSS. After some diagnostic, the Microsoft Engineer suggested we move all mailboxes from the problematic database to a new database.

On Sunday, I created a new Mailbox Store and started moving all the 300 plus mailboxes. It took me almost 11 hours to finish all mailboxes (what a pain). After the move had completed, I deleted the problematic Mailbox Store and did a full backup. The full backup took much longer to run compare to other time but nevertheless, it did complete successfully.

Shall keep an eye on this and hopefully the corruption will not happen again.
