Our Exchange 2003 Server is on a 2003 Domain Controller. A few weeks ago, one of our admins removed all the transaction logs from the Exchsrvr directory and enabled circular logging. Fortunately he saved the logs on his local PC. It has been quite some time since these were removed from the server and the transaction logs are still piling up (when we turn off circular logging). I just recently became aware this and was wondering what kind of effect it has on the Exchange Server. Can someone give me detaisl as to whether I should copy these log files back into the directory? If I need to do so, is there a recommended course of action?
I also have a follow up question which I will post on a 2nd post.
