Exchange 2003 Event ID:9690

Hello Experts,

I am having an issue with my email server (Exchange 2003.) About every morning I have to reboot the server in order for the database to reconnect.  I looked for about 30mins through the Event Viewer and finally found what maybe causing the issue.

Event ID: 9690
See Screenshow below

Can I disable this? or how can I fix it.

Thank You,

Please refer to:

and
1. increase the database size limit
2. Make sure that the drive on which you have the database has sufficient space on it.

awesome, I will give some of these a try!
I will get back with you guys/gals shortly.
@XLITS - running an offline defrag without doing anything else first, like deleting large mail or archiving is a complete waste of time.  The database size incorporates the size of the .edb file, plus the .stm file minus any White space.

An offline defrag will only reduce the database file size by the amount of White space indicated in event id 1221, and as this does not get calculated as part of the database size, the defrag will not effect the overall database size.
And keep in mind that 75 GB of data, doing Offline Defrag will take time, so plan for a good outage and do it.

If you have more whitespace after checking, then it is better , as the other expert suggested, its good to go with moving mails to .psts, which will create white space, then check for Event 1221 and go with Offline Defrag.
ok, Would going to Exchange 2007 help this out as well?
