Hi,

MSDE has a 2GB maximum size for the database and SQL Express 2005 has a maximum size of 4GB.

MSDE does not have a GUI so you need to use osql.exe. But LCS includes a tool to backup the database: -

Dbbackup /backupfile:c:\backup\LCS-DB-Backup

The MSDE should be more than adequate for the number of users that you have.

You would need to setup an Archiving server to archiving IMs as no messages are kept in the rtc db.

User SQL Query Analyzer or the SQL Server Managemet console and open the lcslog database and run the following query replacing userid@<domain.com' with the sip URI of the user you are looking to see the archived IMs from.

Select * from lcslog.dbo.messages, lcslog.dbo.users where lcslog.dbo.users.userid
= fromid and lcslog.dbo.users.useruri = 'userid@<domain.com'
