Eseutil doesn't start
Posted on 2008-01-31
I tried to run Eseutil last night to defrag the exchange database since the hard drive has only 1gb left.
I dismounted both the mailbox store and public folder store.
Since there was no free space on the exchange db folder, I ran eseutil with the /t option.
The command I sent was: eseutil /d /p "path\db.edb" /t"m:\tempdb.edb"
m: is drive on another pc that I mapped on the exchange server. On various websites I found that you have to put no blank spaces after the /t option
What happens is that eseutil starts, creates a 8kb tempdb.edb file on the m: drive, then hangs at 0%.
I let it run overnight but this morning the defragment status was still at 0%, and the file was still 8kb of size. No .stm file was created also.
Anybody have any idea?
