Re-create exchange mailbox store on SBS Premium
Posted on 2006-07-21
I need to recreate mailbox store in exchange on my SBS Premium edition.
Reason is simple I dont have so much time to repair exchange database so recreating will be a good idea (I think so) (database is 21 GB so eseutil shirnking is taking about 13 hours and the result is poor 100MB less but as I see in managment tool users mailboxes use only 6 GB. Database is still growing)
So i want to delete my current store. Creat new. And move all the messages to the new one.
Im thinking about this:
1. Use client computer with Outlook to log on on each user and download all messages
2. Delete all mailbox from store (about 23 users)
3. Delete store.
4. Create new store.
5. Create all mailbox on the new store.
6. Upload all messages using client computer and Outlook.
I havent tested this yet (on virtual machines)
But maybe someone else can give me the brief how to achive this goal.
