Public Folders in Exchange Dismounted every morning
Posted on 2009-05-08
Following recent space issues with my Exchange server (now resolved) I needed to resubmit the backup jobs using Backup Exec 11.
Now every morning - I assume after each backup has completed - the Public Folders are not available through Outlook or in System Manager on the Exchange server, all other functions are working ok.
When I try and access the Public folders through Outlook, I am simply told that they are not available. When I try and access them through Exchange system Manager - it tells me that the Information store is dismounted. A simple reboot resolves the issue - but I shouldn't have to do this every morning.
Is this a backup related issue? I am NOT backing up the Exchange server tonight to see if the Public folders stay - "mounted". But obviously I wont find out the results until tomorrow.
However in Event Viewer I have found this message ....
Exchange store 'First Storage Group\Public Folder Store (AKOS-EXCH)': The logical size of this database (the logical size equals the physical size of the .edb file and the .stm file minus the logical free space in each) is 70 GB. This database size has exceeded the size limit of 70 GB.
This database will be dismounted immediately.
Which issue is this related too??
