Hi Guys

We got a SBS2003 Server which runs Exchange 2003, i've followed this article; http://www.petri.co.il/change_store_size_limits_ex2003_sp2.htm lots of times to increase database sizes.

However on this particular server if I go into MSExchangeIS there are no subfolders so there is no "Server name\Private-Mailbox Store GUID" to modify.

Has anyone come across this before?

Have you checked to make sure it has SP2 installed?

SP2 was installed quite a while back, I dont want to run the fixit as it tells you what registry entry to modify and its the one that i'm trying to find which does not exist.

Why not try it and see what it does / says - worst case it will do nothing - best case it will add it for you?

I understand you installed SP2 a while back but have you still unmounted & mounted the store back manually since then?

might have to reinstall SP2 as it sounds like something has gone a bit wrong.

Hmm, is it safe to install SP2 on top or do I have to uninstall it first
