Eseutil.exe Exchange 5.5

Hi,

I am running an old NT4 server with Exchange 5.5 and now I dont have any free space on any of my two partitions. I read that it is possible to defrag the Exchange databases with Eseutil.exe but I dont understand how to do it if I dont have free disk during the defragmentation. In an article from MS i read that you need at least 110 percent of the size of the database that you want to process.

I cant install more disk in the server but I can acces disk on an other server. Can I process "over the network"?

If you absolutely have to you can defrag over the network.  I wouldn't recommend it if you can help it though.
BTW in case you need it, here is the syntax to redirect the output to a temporary drive (assuming drive letter x:)

eseutil /d priv.edb /tx:\tempdfrg.edb
