Exchange 2003 still shutting down due to database size after upgrade from Standard to Enterprise
Posted on 2011-03-04
I recently "upgraded" our Exchange server from 2003 Standard to Enterprise. This was done to prevent shutdowns due to the 75 GB data limit.
The problem is that it still shutdown this morning. I'm not sure why as the reported version now says "Enterprise" when viewing the system in ESM.
I also get Event ID 1217 in the application log for the Public store stating "unlimited storage".
However, a few entries later I still have event 1216 that references the 75 GB limit...
So I'm a bit confused...
Eventually I'll be on 2007 or 2010 but for now I'd just like to get the shutdowns fixed...
ps...the underlying OS is 2003 standard. This is the only exchange server in the organization.
