Exchange Server 5.5 running on Windows NT 4.0 Storage Problem

Hi All,

I am comming to the experts as this is nowhere near my line of expertise.  I have and exchange 5.5 server with the latest service pack running on NT 4.0 with the latest service pack.  My data drive which holds the IS is almost completely full.  After some poking around I see there is a directory that contains some log files that are quite big.  Two stand out more so then the others.  One is 13gb and the other 4gb.  The directory these files are located is exchsrvr\imcdata\log.  The log files in this directory all start with L000000 and finish with an extension of .log.  These files also have todays date on them.

Any input on how to free up some space on this drive would be appreciated.  Also I did notice that the Diagnostic Logging tab has almost everything set to Maximum.

Any input would greatly be appreciated.

stop the imc and move them to a different location. they would be re-created when the imc restarts.

if diagnostic logging is not required then change the logging level to minimum

these logs get created when the logging is set to a high level. the events are appended to the log and the log file grows.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

So if i understand correctly these files are not critical in regards to email messages other then for diagnostics...?   Can you confirm this for sure....Everything is running smooth on our server and if this is the case i will def move them and this would def resolve many of my storage headaches....

that is correct. if you set the logging level to none for the IMS and then restart it, you would notice then the logs are no longer being created/modified
