Problem Reported: When rebooting the Server, Getting Blue Dump Error



As per the error meesage, The error code is 0X00000074. Please follow the below steps to resolve the issue without restoring the OS.

Collected the Crash DUMP and analyzed to find root cause. Found Registry got corrupted which caused for this issue.

Map the Log File Path,


But, Log Files are got damages and there is not other last log file is available in healthy condition. Thus We are going to force repair without the log files,



Now, you can see the Database is showing dismounted status and if you run the Command ESEUTIL /mh “d:\chnpfdbdb01\chnpfdb01.edb”. You will see the database in clean shutdown.
