Exchange 2003 Enterprise Defrag

Hi,

I would be grateful if anyone can point me in right direction.

I have Exchange 2003 Enterprise running on Windows 2003 Server and want to defrag the database.

The Exchange is installed on the default path C drive and the exchange database (Priv1.edb and Pub.edb) stored on the D drive.

When I started the defrag I used the following command:

C:\Program files\Exchsrvr\bin> eseutil /d D:\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb

The defrag started and the dot started to move along as normal but after few hours I got an error message re the space on the C drive so I started the defrag again on the D drive where there’s plenty of space over 110% and specified the temporary file location for temp database and temp streaming file with the following command:

C:\Program files\Exchsrvr\bin> eseutil /d C:\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb /t "D:\temp\" /s "D:\Temp"

few seconds later I got an error message

C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin>ESEUTIL /D "D:\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb" /t"d:\t
emp\"

I did google search regarding the error code but can’t find a solution.

Your help is much appreciated

Many thanks

Okay - confused as to where your database resides as your two commands contradict each other.

Is the database on C: or D: ?

Command if the database is on D: should be:

eseutil /d d:\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb /td:\temp\tempdfrg.edb

Try that and see if it works happily.

Could be an issue with the IOPs on the data drive.  As a test get a usb drive and try to point the temp file to it.

Hello Alan,

Thanks for your response, just to clarify, the databases are on the D drive. When i first tried to defrag it the temp files were being generated on the c drive and had the notification of the low disk space so  i ran the defrag again and used the switch to create the temp files on the D drive and that's when i got that error message.

As per your question:

When I started the defrag I used the following command:

C:\Program files\Exchsrvr\bin> eseutil /d D:\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb

..... so I started the defrag again on the D drive where there’s plenty of space over 110% and specified the temporary file location for temp database and temp streaming file with the following command:

C:\Program files\Exchsrvr\bin> eseutil /d C:\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb /t "D:\temp\" /s "D:\Temp"

Hopefully just a typo - but if not - that would cause you problems.

Alan,

sorry the first defrag i rang i used the following command. (without speficing the temp location)

C:\Program files\Exchsrvr\bin> eseutil /d D:\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb

using this command it created the temp files into the c drive.

I then ran the defrag again using the switch to specify the temp location for the database (d drive), using the command below:

C:\Program files\Exchsrvr\bin> eseutil /d C:\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb /t "D:\temp\" /s "D:\Temp"

this is where o got the error message. i hope this makes sense and clear from my original question.

Exactly - you specified the location of the database on the D: drive the first time and the C: drive the second time.

That could be the entire cause of your problem.

Look at the commands you have typed and the location of the database in both lines - you have pointed eseutil to a different location in the second command and if the database is on the D: drive, then you are telling eseutil to look on the C: for the database and to put the temp files on the D: drive - that is incorrect.

Hopefully it will be that simple - but you never know.  It's an easy mistake to make - so don't beat yourself up over it.
