You need to modify the attribute garbageCollPeriod under the path CN=Directory Service,CN=Windows NT,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=,DC=,DC=COM.

ust as Tiras said, but to clarify how:
To change the online defragmentation period you need to change the garbage-collection period by modifying the garbageCollPeriod attribute in the enterprise-wide DS configuration object.
 Your can do this using any Active Directory editing tool, including Adsiedit.msc, Ldp.exe. The path for the garbageCollPeriod of Server1 in the Company.com domain would be:

CN=Directory Service,CN=Windows
NT,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=SERVER1,DC=COMPANY,DC=COM
