Offline defrag on Exchange 2003
Posted on 2008-10-09
Exchange 2003 enterprise with SP2 .... Priv1.edb is 89 GB & Priv1.stm is 24 GB
I am planning an offline defrag but want to know how much time it will take to complete... offline defrag has never been run before.
The server hardware is dual core processors with 4Gb RAM, OS and exchange log files are on drive C: (RAID-5 on SAS with 10k rpm) and exchange databases are on D drive (RAID-5 on SAS 10k rpm) ... i have 400Gb free space on D: drive for defrag
I have deleted a lot of mailbox data today ... and expect around 20 GB of free space after defrag.
Can anyone point to some tools which would give a preview time for the offline defrag to complete before i actually start it? ... or any other advise on offline defrag?
