2003 Transaction Logs Not Purging After Full Backup
Posted on 2006-03-31
Windows 2003 Std SP1 along with all hotfixes
Exchange 2003 Std SP2
- Single Private Store
- Single Public Store
McAfee Virus Scan 8.0i (Excluding C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\*.* along with the location of the transacation files and DB files)
McAfee GroupShield 6.02
After running a FULL backup of Exchange either using Symantec Backup Exec 10d (With Exchange Agent) or NTBackup, the transaction logs are not purging. I have logs dating back three months that have grown to 29GB in total size. The ESM shows that the Store has been backed up fully last night, yet the logs are still there.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Any tools that I could run to figure out if there is an issue with Exchange.
