exchange 2003 standard to enterprise question

I just upgraded from exchagne 2003 sp2 to 2003 enterprise .. on a windows 2003 standard 2003 sp2 box.  I also reinstalled exchange sp2 after the upgrade was complete.  My questions are as follows.  How do i confirm that the upgrade was done?  Were does it say that i am now running exchange enterrpise. Also i still see the following error in the event viewer,  I already tried to raise the vaule in the registry to a larger number than 75gigs.

Exchange store 'First Storage Group\Mailbox Store (XXXXX)': The current physical size of this database (the .edb file and the .stm file) is 78 GB. This database has exceeded the size limit of 75 GB. However, the logical free space in this database has not yet been evaluated. Therefore, it is possible that this database contains enough free space to bring its logical size below the maximum size limit.

If the logical database size exceeds the maximum size limit, it will be dismounted on a regular basis.

Hello adpro,

You can follow steps in this article to check:'s_my_exchange_2000_2003_version.htm

The same reg key is used for standard/ent for db max size, except the maximum is 8000 for enterprise if i recall.

Let us know what you find.


You need to restart Information Store service after updating the registry. In the event viewer-> Application log, you can find the 1216 event id for verifying the database size has been successfully set. You can refer the below mentioned KB article:
