Online maintenance, users and backups

Hello

Running Exchange 2007 SP2 on Windows 2008 Server. We are running Single Copy Cluster Exchange servers, Active/ Active/ Passive. Our backups are configured for a FULL on Fridays and incrementals on the other days (to flush the logs)

I remember in Exchange 2000/2003, we configured our backups and online maintenance to avoid conflicting.

Three questions:

1. Is this still the case with Exchange 2007? Or does it not make much of a difference?

2. How does online maintenance affect user experience? We have some departments that access their mailboxes 24/7...not sure how this will work with online maintenance?

3. Am I correct that if online maintenance doesn't finish, this will lead to store growth?

Yes there is no difference just go to mailbox database properties and in the end you will find maintanance schedule list, you will have customize button where you can customize your schedule.
You also can do this through EMS by running some simple scripts.
Set-MailboxDatabase -Identity "Server01\MailboxDatabase1" -MaintenanceSchedule "Sat.1:00-Sat.3:00".
If you want it for 2 days a week you cam add them with a comma. EX
"Sat.1:00-Sat.3:00", "Wed.1:00-Wed.3:00".

Coming to user experience, generally we do it during less traffic hours, but users will not have that much serious issues AFAIK.

If online maintanence is not complete you can check in Event-viewer and obviously logs will not be purged.
