I have an exchange server with a .edb that is in a dirty shutdown state. I have 2 storage groups. The second storage group will not mount due to dirty shutdown. That database is on e: drive, the transaction logs are in C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Mailbox\Second Storage Group I tried to run eseutil /mh e:\exdb2 but I get an error saying that the file is locked.
What is the exact command I need to run to repair the .edb?

How can I restore corrupt .edb?

There is the possibility to use third-party tools such as edb repair EDB Repair Kit. It can also help in your problem. Try to Use all the tools and some of them should help. http://www.edb.repair/

First you need to stop your Information Store service and back up everything (edb, stm, and log files) to a different disk. You must ensure that you have sufficient amount of free disk space.
Now, follow the steps given below to get your database back to the clean shutdown state:
Initially, run the following command to verify your database consistency:
eseutil /mh "c:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb"
If you find the database state to be 'Dirty Shutdown', perform a soft repair using the below command:
eseutil /r "c:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb"
This command replays the transaction log files to make sure that all the database operations are successfully completed.
Perform a hard repair of your database using 'Eseutil /p' as follows:
eseutil /p "c:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb"
Defrag your database stores by using the 'Eseutil /d' command-line utility.
Finally check the database integrity by running the 'Isinteg' utility from the BIN folder as follows:
'isinteg -s servername -fix -test alltests'
Please also refer following Microsoft's support article for same.
