offline defragmentation - 26.May2005 7:49:00 PM

I run a Exchange 2000 server for a small public school system. I have had this server for 4 years and I am quickly running out of disk space. I have been deleting mail to make more space, but saw no difference in the amount of available space.

In reading the postings, I now know that I need to run eseutil /d to defragment the database.

My question is: Can I redirect where the utility makes the temporary database?

The instructions say that I need 110% of free disk space to run eseutil. I only have about 10% of the original disk free.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Yes you can redirect the temporary database.
Run ESEUTIL /?
This will explain how to do it.

In essence you will use the /t switch.
I will assume that you have mapped drive letter W: to the location with enough space. Then at the end on the ESEUTIL /D command line add /TW:\TEMPDFRG.EDB

Notice that there is no space between the T and W.

This is another way to go about if you have the time and another place on the network to copy the Exchange DBs to. KB#244525

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;244525

Esentially you are copying 4 or 5 necessary files that will run the eseutil on another server (doesn't have to be Exchange server) and running the utility against your db's.

The file copy process is the thing that takes up the most time, but this might work out well for you if you have all of the resources.
