Commit Trans Logs to Database Manually - 25.Apr.2008 7:32:53 AM

Hi,

During our migration processes from GroupWise to Exchange using the Quest migration tool, we noticed last night during a migration of one of our biggest mailboxes (which we wanted to get out of the way early), it made the transaction logs get extremely large and fill up the drive in which the logs are being currently stored.  I was wondering if there is a PowerShell script that i can run to commit the transaction logs to the database, and flush the logs... or should i just not waste my time and move the log files to a larger disk...

You misunderstand the logs you're looking at.
Transactions are committed to the database. Those logs are there in case you need to restore a previous backup and commit the transactions in the logs to that old database to bring it up to date.
If you want to get rid of those log files you need do nothing more than back the database up normally.
