Well, maybe the database do not have any white space?

During an online defragmentation an 1221 event should be logged in the application log which looks something like:
Event: 1221
Source: MSExchangeIS Private
Type: Information
Category: General
Description: The database has <nnn> megabytes of free space after online defragmentation has terminated.

Where <nnn> is the white space in the database.

Do you see event 1221 in the app log? How much free space does it report?
