ESEUTIL /d ends in error 1032

Hi,

Exchange 2003 Sp2, part of SBS 2003 Sp2. Database limit 75 GB. Priv1.edb 20.7 GB, Priv1.STM, 32 GB. Using /t over a USB drive with 198 GB free.

DB dismounted via System Manager; all Exchange Services stopped, IIS stopped, DNS stopped, all Symantec Endpoit stopped.

Got error 1032 every single time.

Any ideas?

You need the Information Store Service running to run eseutil

Sounds like the store is still mounted according to the error, or your anti-virus software is scanning the Exchange directory and shouldn't be, thus holding the file open.

Please check the store is dismounted and the information store service is running and disable anti-virus software.

Ah - ok. Yes SEP is Exchange aware and should automatically exclude the Exchange structure.

No problems. I'm about for about 2 hours more then bed!   Midnight for me now.

The command is correct although you don't need the quotes around the final part.

I would run the following command:

eseutil /d "d:\program files\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb" /tz:\defrag\defrag.edb

Oops - you beat me to it - but not to worry.  Sounds good.

Bear in mind that the defrag will only remove the amount of whitespace in the database identified in event is 1221 in the Application Event Log unless you change the mailstore / mailbox retention period to 0.

Check out my offline defrag guide here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_2730-Exchange-Offline-Defrag.html

Also, I am not convinced that you can run an offline defrag with the temporary location being located on removable storage.  I'm not 100% sure so I will test it later.

alanhardisty: Yes, retention was set to 0. Now the EDB file is about 20 GB but the STM is 32 GB. Is thre anything that an be done or User must d to reduce the STM?

demazter:THanks. Good article.

Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
If retention is set to 0 for mailbox and mailstore then the only way to reduce the size further is to delete mail, then defrag again.
