Running eseutil /p on a database size of 5gb will take about 75 minutes maximum. After eseutil /p u have to do a eseutil /d then isinteg.If your eseutil /p command has stopped for a long time possibly you must have clicked on the dos screen which stops the process of repair. On the title bar of the dos screen make sure the path is there and NOT "start".
As far has exmerged data is concerned, you could import it back to the original database. I hope you know how to do that if not let us know. Make sure admin or the user has the send as and receive as right . Make sure domin admin group has also got this right. Do not miss enterprise admin group let them also have this right.

"please reply urgently"

last night suddenly our exchange 2003 server got down when our ups power
went off.After the restart database didn't mount ."Total database file
size priv1.edb=5gb" first we checked the database consistancy by eseutil
/mh and we got error the "state=dirty shutdown" after that we tried to
repair the data base file "priv1.edb"
by eseutil /p.  but its already 5 hours now but it has stuck on
"deleting unicode fixup table"  and now we are not able to unlock the
system by admin password. because of might be low on resorces.
