Size of Priv1.edb files - 10.Aug.2005 7:21:00 AM

We are currently migrating our users from AD2000 and Exchange 2000 through to AD2003 and Exchange 2003.

The Priv1.edb file on our 2k exchange server is 4Gb. So assuming that when we use the Migration tool we will have a 4Gb .edb file on 2k3 exchange server.
Unfortunately this is not the case, so far we have migrated under half the users and we now have a 16Gb priv1.edb file on the 2k3 exch server. We have run the online maintenance and an offline defrag utilising eseutil.exe, but to no avail, the database is still 16Gb.

Anyone any ideas? If the database is only 4Gb on 2k surely 2k3 should not be larger?
Thanks for any assistance.

Are these server part of the same administrative group? Sounds like it's SIS (single instance storage) that get's broken.

For more info on how mailbox moves affects SIS, see below MS KB article:

Many thanks for the info. We think you have hit the nail on the head. We can now at least work around the problem.

Thanks
