The last sentence now reads: You hunt around in Exchange Administrator, but can't find what you're looking for; that's because there isn't any way to do this to all existing mailboxes from within Exchange Administrator.

In the fourth paragraph, the author lists the same registry key for two

different services. He says that the DS Port is set by MSExchangeDSParametersTCP/IP port and lists the same registry entry for the IS: MSExchangeDSParametersTCP/IP port. The IS registry entry should be the MSExchangeISParametersTCP/IP port. Therefore, the second: ...MSExchangeDS... now reads: ...MSExchangeIS...

The "Repair mode" section text was replaced with the following

Recovery mode eseutil can attempt to recover a database that's in an inconsistent state. This is called a soft recovery, since it won't cause any data loss and is generally nondestructive. When you use eseutil's recovery mode, it attempts to bring the database to a consistent state by replaying any uncommitted transactions from the log files. When recovery runs, eseutil uses the checkpoint file (EDB.CHK) to confirm which log files still contain uncommitted transactions. Recovery mode has the following syntax: eseutil /P database [/T tempName] [/D] [/V] [/X] [/O] database Specifies what database you want to repair. Use /ds, /ispub, or /ispriv as the database name to tell eseutil to look up the database name and path in the registry, or provide the full path and database name. /D Specifies that eseutil should test the database for errors without repairing it. The /T, /V, /X, and /O switches have the same function here as in the previous modes."

The "Recovery mode" section was replaced with the following

Repair mode This mode is scary because it can cause data loss. When you tell eseutil to recover a database, it will freely truncate any database page it can't cleanly recover. While this will normally restore your database to a consistent and usable state, it will also normally cause you to lose some message and/or mailbox data. Don't use this mode except as a last resort. If you run an integrity check and it shows errors, always run a repair first. If that doesn't fix everything, you have two choices: restore from a good backup (hopefully with no data loss), or run a recovery. Any time you're tempted to choose the latter option, call Microsoft support first to see whether there are any other alternatives for recovery. MS has an array of specialized tools that they can give you to fix specific problems, but only if you call them. Repair mode has the following syntax: eseutil /R { /IS | /DS } [/L logPath] [/S systemPath] [/O] The interesting switch here is the one that controls whether the recovery runs against the IS or DS. You can specify either, but not both, and eseutil will automatically look up the location of the log and database files in the registry-you can't manually override those values. The /L, /S, and /O switches work the same way here as in the other modes."
