I've read a few MS articles and there is no NTBackup running or any exchange aware backup running on this particular day.

Thanks

What do you have your database maintenence interval set at?   Is it set to end at 6am?   Look at the properties of the database.

It's set 1-5am.  So i'm guessing it's just running out of time and i have to set custom schedule.  can't believe i didn't consider that option.

It looks like the pass completed based on this:

Information Store (5020) First Storage Group: Online defragmentation has completed the resumed pass on database 'D:\Exchange Data\mdbdata\priv1.edb'.

but then 1 min later:
Information Store (5020) First Storage Group: Online defragmentation is beginning a full pass on database 'D:\Exchange Data\mdbdata\priv1.edb'.

three hours later:
Information Store (5020) First Storage Group: Online defragmentation of database 'D:\Exchange Data\mdbdata\priv1.edb' was interrupted and terminated. The next time online defragmentation is started on this database, it will resume from the point of interruption.

i've got it set to run from tomorrow night through sunday so it can perform the online defrag but don't understand the completed resumed operation successfully only to start another?  maybe because it was resumed and has to complete one for that day?

Thanks

Yes, that's fine.  Once it's fairly defragged, you should only see it once a day, but it doesn't hurt to run twice.
