When you use the eseutil /k log file
command on a folder where transaction logs reside in Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1), you receive the following error message:
ERROR: Invalid log version. Format LGVersion: (7.3704.8). Expected: (7.3704.5).
For example, if you run the command on the Exchsrvr\Bin folder, you receive this error message. Additionally, the eseutil
command stops, and you receive the following error message:
Operation terminated with error -514 (JET_errBadLogVersion, Version of log file is not compatible with Jet version) after nn:nn seconds.
This problem occurs if you use the eseutil command on log files that were created before you upgraded to Exchange Server 2003 SP1.
