Need to run Exchange server 2000 offline defrag but disk space is too low.
Posted on 2007-07-29
I am running 2000 SBS and the exchange 2000 mail database has expanded past the 16 GB limit. I increased it to 17 GB via registry changes, and that helped. I have had the users delete gigs of mail, but of course this won't actually help until I defreg the store.
So, I need to do an off-line defrag, but do not have enough Free drive space.
Can I send the re-written copy to NAS (like my Snapserver) and then copy it back to the 2000 Server?
I read somewhere thet you can copy the store to another server and run the defrag from there. Is this true?
What would be the best solution to this problem?
