Exchange 2013 and Why it’s Bad to Hard Shutdown …

So, I made the mistake of backing up the virtual hard disk then shutting down the VM when migrating to a new array … oops … dummy … the VM was not shut down when you copied the file so of course it will show as a hard power off … well when I brought it back up on the new array, I quickly found exchange wouldn’t mount the data store because it was a ‘Dirty Shutdown’ … after much research, I tried the old ESEUTIL /R and ESEUTIL /P but still couldn’t get it back online. Then, I read ANOTHER article which mentions something the others left out … DELETE THE LOG FILES! So, I backed them up and then nuked ’em … Exchange mounted the store like a champ and I have been good ever since …
