We are running exchange 5.5 server on a windows 2000 box.
Today the private information store service terminated unexpectedly. error code is 7031, Event source is Server Control Manager.

I am going to run the isinteg.exe on the exchange server, but I not sure if it need lots of free space. The priv.ebd is 34Gb, but the server has only got 10Gb free space.

Can anyone please give advise, if this will be a problem?

Thanks in advanced.

    If you want to use isinteg.exe, the tool will copy and repair the database on the same disk as your current db before replacing it.

    So you need to have at least 34Gb available as your db is 34Gb. There is no possibility to change the volume you're using, so the only solution you have is to backup you current db, raise the size of your volume and then run isinteg.exe.

    Sorry to not have better answer for you.

    What I've seen once, is someone you backup the volume offline, add a 120Gb IDE disk, change the volume letters, restore all on this IDE disk, run isinteg.exe, and done the way back to the RAID SCSI once finished.

    Well, I do not see any real solution in the links given by Cyber-Dude...
    The first article does not apply (see the list of conditions to met) and the second is seen everywhere, just by requesting the help of the tool...
    Sorry but I don't agree with your decision
