I have an MS Exchange 5.5 SP3 server that's been performing quite slowly. I have noticed some wierd stuff, like the server lists a mailbox as containing 10,000 mesages, when there are really only 50 of them.
So I looked around and found these 2 utils that come with exchange. They both do similar, but not the same, things. But before I go and destroy a 5 GB exchange database I thought I would ask.
Which one do I run first and what options?
I figure I need to do a consistency check, then a pack, then a defrag of the database.
I am already running a eseutil /g /ispriv - that appeared to do a read-only check of the database, I figured I was safe.
I am also looking to avoid any expirimentation time on this, as anything I do to it will take hours to complete.
