    I would if it needs it.  If you've never run eseutil before on the database, allow for a long time--I don't know the size of it.  Also, after killing the Exchange services, you should backup the database BEFORE running eseutil, in case an issue arises.

    Defragging the database should be straight forward, and if you run into issues, restoring your offline backup of the database can be your plan B; however, the defrag should go just fine.

    First, to confirm that the database needs a defrag, follow the microsoft article:;en-us;329817&Product=exch2k

    If it does, then follow this microsoft article to actually defrag it:
