command to Offline Defrag Exchange 2003 but use temp space on another server

Hi

Our Exchange server has run out of disk space, i need to do an offline defrag however as i have limited space on the server i want to use a mapped drive to another server,

Can someone please tellme the syntax to perform this.

(its not a small business server i just added it for the extra zone)

Thanks

An example would be C:\>eseutil /d /ispriv /td:\Sample.edb

eseutil.exe /d path_to_edb.edb /t:"Path_to_temp.edb".
Try to defrag the DB to another internal disc. It will take forever to defrag thru network (maybe an usb disk?).

Make sure you have first purged as much as you can, and verify how much space you will get back by looking for event ID 1221 in the event log.

Also note that once you start you can't stop the process and it will process between 1-4GB per hour, so may take some time to complete.

Also make sure you have a full backup beforehand as it can occassionally cause data loss.

exact syntax:
C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin>eseutil /d /p "e:\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb" /t"u:\defrag\defragged.edb"

where u is the mapped drive.  However, I agree with the others above - a USB attached drive would be a much better choice.
