ESEUTIL command

I was wondering if someone could tell me the exact command I need to use when running the ESEUTIL utility for defragmenting an Exchange 2003 database.  The issue we have is that the D:\ drive where our single priv.edb resides, there is only roughly 35gb's of free disk space left.  Our priv.edb is 85gb's and I know we'll need at least 110% of the dabase size in free disk space which we don't.  We were going to map an E: drive to some free space on our SAN.  I believe we'll need to use the /T switch?

Anyways, I just wanted to make sure that I'm exectuing the correct ESEUTIL command if I had the following:

path to priv.ed is D:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata

Could someone help me out?

Hi,

First things first. Did you check event 1221 in your event logs and make sure that the defrag is going to get you enough space back to make this worth it? There's no point defragging unless there is enough white space in the DB to make it worth it. Completing an offline defrag is not something you should do as part of routine maintenance.

Make sure you have a known good backup of the database.

The command would be cd to the directory where eseutil is located.

cd \program files\exchsrvr\bin
 

eseutil /d D:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\Priv.edb /te:\TmpPriv.edb 

Open in new window
