Hello ,

Today we receive a message from SCOM that some of our volumes with the databases inside of our Exchange 2007 SCC installation has high fragmentation level. These volumes are iSCSI volumes on a SAN.

I check in the mailbox server in the Disk Defragmenter and indeed these volumes are 97% fragmented.

What will happen if the fragmentation level reach 100% ?

Can i start the defragmentation when the system is online ?
