Managing Exchange 2003 Journaling
Posted on 2008-10-13
I had setup a journal account on an a Exchange 2003 SP2 server. I have 3 Exchange 2003 data stores being journaled to this server. The journal has grown to 60GB and is practically unmanagable. Can some recommend a best practice solution to managing the size of a journal Exchange server? I do back it up to tape with Backupexec.
How can I reduce the size right now?
I don't think I can back it up to PST since it is 60GB(maybe going forward I could)
Is there anyway I can back it up to PST now?
Going forward, how can I manage the size and still be able to view the emails in the journal but keep a retention of 1 year.
