Why Access denied repairing EDB with ESEUTIL?
I'm trying to put a restored EDB in to a clean shutdown state (its currently saying its in a dirty shutdown state). However when I run the command I get this back;
Operation terminated with error -1032 (JET_errFileAccessDenied, Cannot access file, the file is locked or in use) after 30.93 seconds.
If I use handle.exe to show the handles for objects in use then that recovered EDB doesn’t appear in the list. The main EDB does but this recovered one (that will be part of a recovery group) doesn't.
There's no AV installed (I removed it to see whether this was causing the issue though it did have an EDB exclusion).
Any ideas what may be the cause?
Is this a good question?
