Graphical and command-based options for re-mounting a failed database are presented as troubleshooring methods. Warnings are given for each approach.
- [Instructor] So we've looked at how to troubleshoot…and recover from a database that's been suspended…because of replication problems.…Now we're going to take a look at situations…where the problem isn't with replication,…but a failure of the database itself.…The most common symptom of a database that's failed…is that it will not mount.…So here we are, back in the exchange admin center,…on our exchange server,…and let's take a look at the status of the databases,…and there we see that a mailbox has been dismounted.…
Now just as with a suspended database replication issue,…we could try the easy, risk-free solution first.…It is possible that the database is okay,…but just didn't mount when the server…booted up or something.…If that's the case, you can remount the database here…by selecting the database, clicking on the three dots,…and selecting mount.…And if that works, great.…If not, there are a couple more things we can try.…
We can use a bigger hammer,…and attempt to force the database to mount.…This comes with some risk of data loss,…
