I have enabled Database Zeroing in my Exchange Server 2K3 sp2 via the Exchange Server Manager. I now need to make sure it is working. However, I do not know what the event ID # is to view in "Event Viewer". I assume the source is ESE. Can anyone help me on this so I know for a fact it is enabled. Thanks

I can not find event id 197 or 198 in the Event Viewer. Is there some type of special logging I need to startup in ESM. Do I need to stop & start the exchange server services to start the logging??

The Microsoft Information Store services must be stopped and restarted and in ESM (Exchange Service Manager) the Diagnostic Logging must be set for "MSExchange IS\System, General-Medium, Performance Monitor - Minimuim and Exchange Backup & Restore - Maximum. Also, the event ID for "Start Zeroing" is 706 & 712. And the ID for "Finishing Zeroing" is 707& 713".
