hi all,

I'm attempting to do an offline defrag on a large exchange database (around 55GB) on a SBS2003 box.  The process gets to around 95% or so (so it seems on the the progress bar) than errors as follows:

Operation terminated with error -1108 (JET_errInTransaction, Operation not allowed within a transaction) after 24883.63 seconds.

can anyone shed any light on this?
