Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Thanks - there is a couple other software toolbox's that you can purchase - I thought maybe you were referring to them. I ran the troubleshooter but it did not find any problems! I did a backup and repair so we will see what happens. The data base is 96GB which is way to large. Everyone has deleted out of outlook as much as they can and yet it continued to grow. Also I want to do a defrag, but I have to set the temp file to a different drive due to space limitations. Does anyone know how to do this?
Thanks for your help.

Dont defrag, never defrag when you use Exchange 2007. Just create a new database and move mailboxes to it then finally, restart Exchange services and remove original database.

Offline defrag can cause data loss and will take ages to run.

Event log clean?

Hi Shaun,
I only have about 33GB left on the main drive, but I have a 2nd raid with 160GB free. Any instructions on how to set up the new database and move the mailboxes over? The reason I was going to defrag was to get the mailbox size down - I don't think the online defrag was working before I repaired the database. Doesn't the defrag clean up the database?

no, the defrag will convert white space to disk space, but you houldnt run it with 2007 as the is no need, if you want the disk space back identified with event id 1221, just use the exchange management tool - server admin - mailbox to create a new db on seperate raid, use move mailbox wizard to move all over, then drop original db and job done.

thanks for you help - I began to move users to a new store and it works fin, but I have 4 people whose mailboxes are over 4GB on the exchange server but yet their computer says less than a gig. When I moved the first  one to the new store, the file reduced just a small amount any help?

what outlook says / the size of ost file does not have any reflection on actual size of data as reported by exchange. always go with exchange on size. if you move all mailboxes from old db to new db you will save approx the figure given in event id 1221.

The user has deleted tons of emails & attachments but the size hardly went down.

Did they permanantly delete from the 'deleted items' folder?
Has the Exchange deleted item retention period expired and has online maintenance been run?
