Exchange 2003, Backup, Logs, SPAM
Posted on 2011-02-18
I have a VM of SBS2003 server whose hard drive is filling up very quickly. I have added more HD space and looked around.
The Exchange logs are not being flushed out. That's because there hadn't been a backup in some time. So I did that last night and the logs didn't clear.
I noticed that this morning some more space was eaten up and I started refreshing -- the log was filling up FAST.
So I looked at the Exchange queues and to my horror, there it was SPAM. Now, I locked down that server before and we hadn't had a problem for about 3 years.
The server is going to run out of space and go down again if I can't clear up space.
What do I do? It's these logs for sure -- I have several multi-gb sized files. Try to rerun the backup? Delete old files? How do I quickly stop the SPAM?
Please assist. Thank you.
