Hello,
Does anyone have the script to run Exmerge to export all the data out of the info store? Also, if you do is it possible to script the dismount of the info store and then run the exmerge and then remount the store? Thoughts?

Thanks...
Tony

The store has to be mounted to run the exmerge utility, so dismount is of no use. What version of exmerge and exchange are you using?

You will need to write a batch file and call two different scripts ... the first script to run Exmerge (consult the documentation that comes with the downloaded executable for the command line variables) (you'll also need to modify the exmerge.ini and mailbox.txt files - make sure you set the command line variables to point to your exmerge.ini, and configure the exmerge.ini to get the mailbox info from mailbox.txt) ... the exmerge.ini file configures the source, destination and other important information ... read through it, it is fairly easy to configure) ... when completed you'll need to call a batch file that stops the exchange services ... if you stop the SA it will kill the rest of the services and dismount the store ...

In the mailbox.txt file it gives an example of how to configure it ...


The 2003 version of Exmerge is backwards compatible and more efficient than the older version ...

Hope that isn't too confusing ...

No ... you can't run exmerge if the store is dismounted ... I apologize, I misread the question above ... I thought you were looking to dismount the store post - exmerge
